    Sweet1! Where did you get all that and how much did it run ya? Cant wait to see how it works.

    Why did you go this way instead of a 'kit' out there?

    I already have a hydro assist "kit" and I am unhappy with it so I'm doing my own thing...

    That "little" pump is going to power the whole steering system. It puts out 1500 psi and 3.7 gpm compared to the stock pump of about 1000 psi and 2 gpm at most... I'm going to run a stock pump to power the hydroboost brakes and thats it then that pump above will do all the steering.

    All of those parts only cost about $450 compared to what most kits that offer the same parts cost... Usually $1000+.
