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.
