$1,450.00

EPAS Performance provides an electrical power steering unit, adaptable to most vintage vehicles, so you can enjoy modern power steering on your classic car. No major or irreversible modifications are made to your vintage vehicle, everything is located under your dash and is almost, if not completely invisible.

How it works:

The computer measures the amount of effort on the steering wheel and amplifies it with the aid of the electric motor. A potentiometer gives you control over the amount of assistance provided, allowing you to fine-tune your EPAS experience. For example, you can have maximum power assist while on a parking lot, and less on the highway. The system is only active while turning.
