I have had mine installed for a few months now. I opted for Brandon to shave the ports and used one of his cores. I also opted for the electric power steering. Everything works flawless and feels great.
I VERY much regret not opting for the EPS setup upfront. I have a Toyota column and controller but still haven't found someone to weld it together for me. I guess for sake of full disclosure I also had one of his cores shaved. Steering is great except for parking lots and alleys on my summer rubber.

Any updates @josh408 ? Anyone else get theirs on and using it? I haven't gotten mine on yet so might be a little worried now
He inspected mine he said the preload needed to be tighter, the looseness caused the shaft to pivot and contact the housing which is what caused the stiffness the entire time. Only possibility he could think of that caused it was the spring settled from his hands to install. He reset everything and should be shipping back to me today. I'll update after I get it back on a test drive.

Nice!! with the electric, once power is applied, super smoooth. I opted for it because I had shoulder surgery years again and need to get it again, so I thought I would be nice to my shoulder since I keep putting off surgery! LOL

Where did you get your EPS setup from?

I've also had mine installed since right after we got them. No issues. I sent in the core for mine. Gotta agree with the other comments, the best feedback you can get and even without the EPS driving is not bad at all unless completely stopped.

Mines ok but it was built by Quaife so i think Josh's was a random fluke his got loose after being done up.

I just got done with my EPS also as trying to turn 275 or 295 tires is not very easy with no assistance!!! i can turn it while moving but not easily this wide so i had no choice but to go this route

I had my EPS setup done by Mr. Cole whole was referred to in the original deal.

Can you give some feedback on your EPS unit by Mr.Cole? Is it rpm controlled? Does it shut off after you're already moving or stay on a suck power the entire time?
I believe it is just powered all the time. Only 3 wires were hooked up, 12V Power, ground and 12V Ignition.

I received the rack back from Brandon and on the bench feels more solid, I went to install it and I will say the feel of it from the steering wheel while on stands is more stiff since he adjusted to preload tighter. Just eye balled my toe and jump started the car and drove it around the block and it doesn't feel like I'm hitting a dead stop in the middle of a turn. It does feel difficult to turn at low speeds like <15mph but still need to test drive outside of where I live after I fully charge my battery this week since I had left the door cracked open one night like a genius. Already had the car decide to stall out but thankfully enough I was going down a steep hill to pop the clutch and get it started again. Will update later this week.
