The power steering lines off of the EJ pump mount right to the EA steering rack points on the engine crossmember no problem, just make a couple small bends to line them up. The AC is doable but my problem I ran into was no room for the condenser because I had to put radiator fans in front of my radiator instead of the usual behind. So that took the spot that the AC condenser was in and then I lost interest. I still would like to have AC again one day just not a big priority. Let us know what you come up with.

for my setup. i used a ejmotor (ej251), a powersteering pump from a 1st gen legacy with the EA reservoir, and the EA pressure and return hoses. they dont line up perfect but they connect. the return hose i think just has to be modified slightly to make it fit better.

 

the ej251 lines i tried to make fit would have needed a 180 degree bend to face the right way.

Hehehe... the differences between a LHD and RHD vehicles. In Oz, being RHD, the power steering lines bolt right in without any bending required :rolleyes:

 

AC - I've not got around to having custom pipes made up but it is on my to do list!

 

Cmiller: how have you not fitted the fans behind the radiator? I've got a 3 core radiator in my L with three fans strategically placed in the room I have between that and the front of the EJ. Just a little imagination!

I've replied to your other thread that I presume you started after this post.

 

Best way to find out about things is to do a search first then ask if you don't find what you're looking for. There are some interesting bits of info you'll find as you search for your answer ;)

 

Cheers
