Re: cruise contrl oscillations, uphill in '91 200tq

Operating the WGFV at .9 boost would have no effect as the engine/turbo are
not in a boost condition. My 91 200q on cruise holds very steady - you
don't mention if your boost gauge reading is changing. If your actually
decellerating, your gauge should go to about .2 or .3 and then back to .9
or whatever is required to maintain speed. Hitting resume on mine, the
cruise is very agressive, wanting to get to the preset speed quickly - I
hav had it go to 1.5 boost to accomplish this.  Cool!!
