Progress! We recently bought Alex Lopez’s 1998 Neon with 2.4 Swap. It came with a built motor but no power steering and we wanted power steering. So, we gave it some thought and decided to go ahead and figure out a way to install the automatic belt tensioner system and second gen power steering pump and reservoir. We really like how the second gen power steering system has the reservoir built in, which allows for more room behind the motor, and no power steering lines running back and forth around the cam gears to the reservoir.
Our goal is to later offer the necessary brackets for you to be able to install the second gen pump and reservoir in your first gen.
So, here is our first startup video. You’ll hear a high pitch vacuum leak, this is from the throttle body, please disregard that noise and just check out the sweetness of the power steering on our high compression 2.4 swap.
Next up we are going to be putting in a lightweight and smaller battery to make room for the air intake system.
