piece of piss to put in with engine out,

need rack, pipes, reseviour, and pump,

i just fitted one into a 2 litre turbo,
does make the job a lot harder but worth it,

other option is a EPAS column off a later corsa B,this is much easier to do as the PAS is on the column and electric powered!

Torque steer isnt that bad

I was thinking about getting a cheap gsi and doing a conversion, it would be a better option because of ew,cl, power steering and the interior. My first car was a corsa without power steering and i would never go back,:lol:

Easy to do. Just need to buy the bits :thumbs:

Probably better without power steering if your having a 2.0 turbo. More fun & it wont be as bad with the torque steer

Is this even possible? Im sure it is but what is involved and how much would it cost? Its just im thinking of buying a cheap corsa and putting a 2L turbo in it but most cheap corsa's dont come with power steering. Hope uz can help, cheers.
