If you find your Mk II'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 box 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 attach the system and no welding is required. (A relatively small amount of under-dash sheet metal must be removed, however.) 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.
