    Has anyone put EPS in their Mopar? I am thinking about it for my rat truck. Looking at the Saturn Vue column. Seems simple enough.

      I used one out of an 07 Toyota Prius, it's cheaper and a lot easier

          Is yours up and running? I have the parts from a Prius also, but was wondering about the assist. How does the steering feel?

                  Yes I have been driving mine for about a year now. It feels OK to me but I am old and don't want to work that hard. I read in some of the videos on you tube that some guys hook them up to a toggle switch that way you can turn it off when you are out on the highway and don't need it

                        I'm still considering an electric pump with computer control, but the Mini pump has a 100 amp fuse so my little 60A alternator is not likely up to the task. I don't want to power assist a 24:1 manual box and really don't want to spend the money on a 16:1 manual.

                        PST 16:1 boxes are pretty reasonable. That's where I got mine.
