Default RT3 Steering column

Anyone swap out an RT3 steering column with anything other than what the car came with. Does anyone know what steering column was used in the RT3.

Thanks in advance!!!

I知 doing a full upgrade to power steering and since I知 there kinda thing. After doing tons of reading here I知 still have a hard time understanding how the steering column bearings go in. I know the BMW part was given, I知 a visual guy and would like to see it first.

This will definitely improve the steering. The original manual rack must also go. It's garbage.
Steering shafts upgrade

The steering column used in the Backdraft RT3 is typically a BMW-based component, often derived from the BMW 3 Series (E36/E46).

The just pop out with a flat blade then push the new ones in.

I did a power steering swap using a BMW Z3 rack and a GM Astra electric PAS pump.

Before I bought my car, I asked about how hard the steering would be without power steering and was told it was not too hard above a couple of miles an hour. I accepted this as part of the 'race car' aspect of driving the car which was the allure. My experience has been that the steering while parking is a real challenge but is true to what I expected. A side benefit may be that it is physical exercise for my arms although they don't appear to be adding the muscle that I would like given the effort expended.
