Anyway I spotted a few of these some months ago - keep getting out bid all the time - they are going for around $1000 AUD at the end of the Auction - I think I have see 8 get sold so far. I have an Electric power steering unit in the UK that I need to ship back to NZ so I can have a go at making one my self the trick from the research I have down is getting the correct wheel speed sensor to tell the ECU you are moving fast enough and that power assist is not longer required.

...but after just getting my z back on the road after 6 months absence due to my laziness, i've become a big girl used to the ease of throwing around cars with power steering, hahah.
anyone have a clue as to how well these would work/any local sources?

I know - this is a VERY old thread, however my search found nothing new on the same 'electric steering" subject.
Looking into options to lighten up the steering on a Z.
My research has led me to all sorts of places, however the easiest conversion would appear to be electric.
This particular post was interesting. Is there some sort of "pre-fabricated" conversion kit that utilises an electric motor from a Barina/Corsa? This under-dash style conversion appeals to me.
Does anyone have further info? Apparently someone in Japan was selling these already made up for the Z, but my initial look into Yahoo.co.jp yielded nothing like that.
Curiouser and curiouser :-\
and yes - I know that is not a real word...

Look - in an ideal world - old skool power steering would be great. That is if I had a garage and space to work in and get it all together. I am tooled up, but since moving in with my GF - have nowhere to work (prob won't for some time either). Going old skool is a pretty big job in anyone's book - definitely need working space.
So - a "bolt in" steering solution that might help me get the missus in the car without complaining certainly is attractive to me.
Definitely like to give it a go anyway.

Stay clear of the GM products though. Apparently they are the first item to implode on the Corsers and Astras etc. Mazda run one as well (2s and 3s I think) so I would opt of one of these but they are around $600 just for the pump

Ok. So steer clear of GM altogether? Damn. I was thinking this would be the way to go seeing as Barina from 94+ apparently had a re-workable electric steering setup.
There has to be someone local who has given this a crack....hope so.
