Possible cruise control problem? Shaking

My early 99 with an exhaust and intake shakes very intermitenly at aabout 70 mphs with the cruise on only. It almost sounds like the engine is losing power but the tach and boost dont drop at all. Sometimes its really noticible and sometimes i can barely tell. Like i said it wont do it going any other speeds and only with the cc on. i guess its not a major issue yet cuz i can do without cruise control but any help would be great. O yea no codes.

Do you set your cc while you're on flat stretches of road or going up/down hills? I've had a similar problem with my truck & I find I have no problems when I set the cc on flat stretches. When I'd set it going up or down hills, the truck would shake & sometimes hunt for gears like it wasn't getting enough power when it would go up it's next hill. Not 100% sure, but here's a
