I got mine for $80 US shipped. I am collecting the rest of the pieces and planning to do the mod next month.
Thanks Pierre.
I looked into electric steering when my power steering pump was leaking last month, but I just ran out of time so I put in an OEM pump again, but the next time I might go electric... I already have UDP
