WARNING: OFFROAD USE ONLY, by purchasing this product you understand the oem safety feature of the oem collapsible column has been REMOVED and will no longer collapse in case of accident and merlin machining is not responsible for any use of this product.
Oem hybrid EPS column. Oem column Core required, do not purchase unless i already have your core in hand.
I only recommend the EPS swap to those who need the space and cannot run any version of hydraulic steering. The EPS is a bit odd at first, sensitivity does not increase or decrease with speed like oem, it also self centers poorly after corners. The oem system is designed very well and most importantly the column will collapse in an accident that pushes the column into the cabin and will spare your face and ribcage from impalement. With all that being said the EPS does make my personal z seem like a much newer car.
AC lower ducting needs cutting to be reinstalled. Does not affect function of A/C.
Minor dash harness relocation and tab bending on upper firewall may be required depending on year model.
Recommend a TT rack with a fully depowered rack and welded input spline.
A guide to 300zx rack depower can be found here. https://youtu.be/AptSPk4ugc0
I also welded my input shaft for no steering play. There are alot of miata how to guides online if you wish to do the same.
