Cool! Now give with the details...

Where did you get it, How much does it cost, How easy to install?

I assume you do a manual adjustment for the level of assist you prefer but is it electronically plug n play?

Hey, when many of us have paid less than that amount for a complete car, it's asking a lot to spend an extra $1500 just to make the steering a little easier.

Well I like the old school rack and pinion anyway.

I had a 67 Coronet that had the pump go out on it. Removed the belt and manhandled the hell out of that car!

It won't be too many more years and it will be hard to find a $1500 Fiero that's drivable. If people are willing to pay what they are asking for that system, it's worth it.

I like the idea of the EPS but I won't seriously consider it unless I think I can make or modify the controller to vary the assist based on speed.

I purchased a Vue EPS unit recently but it's destined to go on a Massey Ferguson that's put on a little weight in the front.

That's the biggest problem with Fiero owners, they measure everything against the price of the car. You shouldn't be buying a Fiero on the cheap thinking it will stay cheap. Realistically a Fiero is a 5-10k car if you don't want a piece of **** . If you buy it cheap, you're just going to spend the money on the back side making it right.

I used to drive an old International straight truck with out power steering. Compared to that my Fiero steers like a Caddy.

Bought my 86 SE for 200 bucks, used parts off my 84 that the engine went on. a friend helped with the frt end repairs for free and we put it all back together for nothing, I am still driving it today, actually all I did was move it to its winter parking spot today.

It is no show car but I was curried of that on the last car I made show worthy, for a daily driver it is just not worth it to me. Besides I have enough problems fixing and keeping the other 3 vehicles we have running. Three of those on the road.

I love the manual steering of the Fiero... It really brings out one of the reasons why I got it in the first place; its a pure, no frills driving machine. None of that BS traction control, ABS garbage! Pure fun... Hold on tight, one wrong move and off the cliff we go! If you find me sitting in my Fiero dead in a ditch somewhere, rest assured I died with a big smile on my face! Haha!
