    No but I’m sure you could adapt something from a late model.

    Cheers

    Beevee have a look on USA epas conversion kits, they had falcon (mustang) in USA so there should be something adaptable even if it's just the uni joints and column parts for a common epas used.
    Edit.. Just remembered, they sell complete kits for hotrods there.

    I'm attempting to install a Yaris epas conversion into my Courier ute, when time allows.. The three items, column, ecu box and driver kit(from Portugal) cost only $320 all in. If I can't get it to fit for some unknown reason I'll install it into a panelvan !

    I use the Suzuki Ignis unit as it’s small and all self contained along with being reasonably straight forward to adapt. I found the Corsa / Barina unit significantly bigger.

    Cheers

    Hi Paul,
    I may be interested in your unit though the idea of rigging something up like Marty is appealing.
    In say an analogue type car like an Escort how does the electric steering motor know cars speed and steering force?
    I suppose my question is, how do you interface them?

    Hi Mark
    Employing a basic GPS speed input into the EPAS ECU to provide a variable pulsed input. Torque is variable based on vehicle speed and input torque via the steering wheel. Basically as speed increases, assistance decreases to a point above a set speed (say 40kph) where there is zero assistance.

    Cheers
