I will use this later. Also, I agree. Completely not needed on a 2500 pound car.

Suite yourself. I will too.

The car was excessively hard to turn with the manual steer and I want to drive it on the road and autocross, both activities need responsive steering.

It seems a lot of folks here automatically dismiss power steering as for wimps or people wishing to desecrate the sacred original cobras. Well, I would probably not put it on a real one but that is completely academic since I will never own one of those (I think).

When the front end starts sticking and adhering to the will need power steering .....there are many factors involved with your steering....rack ratio, geometry of suspension, size of steering wheel......are just a few....also size of tires....

Depending on the motor you have.....the brackets may need to be manufactured....but is worth all of the effort.

Also put a cooler on the pump.
