My first post ! In fact my first Honda !,having rallied a Peugeot 205 for many years I’ve decided to build a ej9 with k20 engine etc .
I have an electric powered steering column on the 205 - corsa- what are the options for the civic it has hydraulic rack as standard but what are they like? No pump on the k20 engine so is it electric pump or does anything else work?

Obvousily with all u need custom high pressure line, bracket to hold the pumps(if not honda) etc

are there any better rack ratios available? Is the integra any better ? I mean quicker
I like the power column in the 205 as I have a switch on the handbrake to give more assist when pulled
so would a none power rack be available for this ?...

Regarding ratios EK4 and EK9 rack is quicker, still not mega quick though. I’m sure there was an aftermarket rack available, after all these are very popular cars for rallying. I think Quaife made them.

Had a look on the quaife site and only lhd options available!!
So ek4/9 rack is the same then ?
If I go with power column then I guess just take out all the internal seals for hydraulics and bung up the ports ??
Any suggestions for steering arms and t
