Remote mounted power steering reservoirs??


Recommended Posts

So version 8s run remote mounted power steering reservoirs to allow the largeer intake pipes they have to pass by without hitting the reservioir.

To get around this problem and keep my v4 sti pump i used the much smaller v4 sti intake and it has been just sqaushed in rubbingand finally getting a hole..

I would like to run the v8 intake pipe as they are much larger.

While at pick a part today picked up a b4 shape legacy power steering reservoir which was mounted on the chassis so i assume B4s have remote mounted reservoirs.

What i want to know is can i remove my reservoir on v4 pump and run hose to hte reservoir OR

Do i need a pump from something that runs remote mount reservoir factory and if so which models have this.

Cheers

Brad

You possibly can adapt your pump to suit a remote resevoir. You can take the resevoir off your pump and have a fitting made that bolts onto the inlet at the top of the pump. Then run a hose from the remote resevoir to the new fitting on top of the pump.

Fitting required is just a flange with a hose nipple braised on or a weld on AN adapter and a Pushlok fitting if you want to be flash :P

I am doing this at the moment.

Because I have flipped my V4 manifold my power steer reservoir hit on my idle control valve.

I am still running an idle control because my car has a VF22, large airflow meter,yellow injectors & a factory ECU that can run up to 20psi (weird JDM SPEC) so at the moment I am just going to run this set up as well as all my other bolt on bits & spend my money on a cage & semi slicks etc.

I have had a look on the net at different engine bay pic's & there is a few cars already done like this.

You can tell what pump it is by looking at it.

All I have done is unbolt the reservoir from the pump and make a new bolt on flange that has a weld on dash 12 fitting on it.

Then i got a reservoir of a later model wrx made a mount & ran some braided hose to it.

My car is not running yet but looks sweet. It gives you heaps more space & looks alot more cleaner. (also adds another 1000hp at the LR wheel)

PS. The late model pump outlet fitting does not fit, I have already tried.
