NEW Electric Power Steering Conversions From EZ Electric Power Steering. If you find your E-Type’s steering is too heavy at slow speeds, we have a solution: an EZ Power Steering conversion that’s completely hidden under the dashboard. The standard steering rack remains unchanged, as does the steering ratio and under-bonnet appearance. Steering assist is fully adjustable and is sensitive to speed and load. CNC-cut brackets are used to attach the system and no cutting, drilling or welding is required. What’s more, the car can easily be converted back to standard steering. Electric steering offers several advantages over hydraulic. The electric motor only uses power when steering assist is required; conversely, a hydraulic pump runs continuously and usually robs your engine of about four horsepower – even when driving straight ahead. Because the electric power steering system is speed sensitive, it provides assistance at low speeds but retains your E-Type’s excellent steering feel at higher speeds. And, the amount of assistance can be adjusted to suit the driver’s preference or to compensate for wider tires or a smaller steering wheel. With classic hydraulic systems, the “feel” is not adjustable and often too light at high speeds. And should the electric system ever fail (highly unlikely, we should add) the car would steer exactly as it did prior to the conversion, unlike a hydraulic system where the steering could be dangerously heavy.
