Better to take your time and do everything right first time. It's not a race buddy

Yep, thanks guys. Slow and steady

Abit more sisu than karhu I think is the best option...

I hate Mämmi

You can always loose it Jarno. On the orange one I've a Saxo electronic power steering pump mounted just over and in front of the antiroll bar with a switched input from the ECU so it's on at tick over and low speed but switches off at higher speed where you don't really want it. make sure you go for the one with remote reservoir as it makes mounting easier. As a bonus if you get the Saxo high pressure oil pipe with the pump it fits straight into the FC rack pipe fitting. Another way of getting rid is a electronic column modification however they're heavy beasts so no weight saving over the pump assembly the only plus is you could use a pwm output and give yourself variable steering weight. In theory It's possible you could control the pump the same way through a solid state relay however I've not tried that so couldn't comment on how successful it'd be.
Regards Kevin

I think Ill do that next winter...

One dude here put Opel Corsa C electrical on his. That is quite common mod here for race cars...

One option is year 2002 Toyota Corollas...

But that Saxo thing is interesting. I think ill consider that one then. From what Saxo? Do you have pics?
