Best $200 mod ever (EPS).

Just did a more extensive test drive with the home-brew EPS from a Vue in a 66 Mustang.

Results are fantastic!

I will post more details soon.

This what it looked like just before install.

So the main two parts needed are the steering unit from a VUE and a control box from that guy in Europe correct?

Also, just thinking out loud. I also would really like a tilt wheel. I wonder if I could just swap in the entire unit, and make my adaptations at the far end of the column?

Subscribed! I just installed a quick steer power steering box from CPP with the borgeson braket and saginaw type pump, works good but like mentioned before, EPS would mean less under the hood.

People keep asking for specific build details in multiple threads here, and other forums, and nobody seems to want to give them. Weird.

I haven't started yet, but I will document everything when I do. I'm going to try and retain the column up/down adjust ability on mine.
