Hi guys

I'm installing a power steering rack into my 93swift gti race car. As a result, I'm looking to source an aftermarket electronic hydraulic power steering (ehps) pump simular to those found on the toyota MR2. Does anyone know where I can find such an item?

Cheers 8)

Hi,

I installed a power steering rack on my 1990 racing Swift a couple of years ago. I used a rack and pinion and all the hardware (hydraulic lines, pump) from a power steering-equipped sedan Swift. 1989-1994 will fit. The bracket fits on the block. You only have to make a bracket for the oil reservoir.

Tell me if you have a hard finding these parts, I can take a look around here.

BTW, Mini Cooper also use electric pump for power steering.

old subaru XT's had electric power steering pumps. Not sure if there is a specific year/years or if model, but it's a common procedure for VW rally guys to grab them and use them in Golf rally cars...

Do you know of any other cars that might have one? I think I could use one and XTs are kinda rare.
