“Oh MY Gaad! Greg, I didn’t really believe you … Its insane! A certain 1973 rusty ol’ piece of shit Datsun will be on the Pole Position of the 2016 West Coast Championship in a short spell.”

Looks like $10 million bucks – Ferrari GTO replica gets power steering!

“Hi Greg,
I got the power steering installed, and I am absolutely delighted with it. Drove the car quite a bit Sunday and it has totally transformed the drivability of the car, particularly at low speeds, it makes parking and maneuvering a breeze. I’m very impressed with the steering feel at highway and backroad speeds too. Bottom line is, I am thrilled with the final results!”

Complete Game Changer!

Wow… Talk about changing the way a car feels and drives. I finally got around to putting in the power steering from Z Power Steering that I ordered from Greg Childs at https://zpowersteering.com a year or so ago after breaking my Z at nearly every Pro Autocross that I went to during the 2017 season (practice starts mostly). I ordered a bunch of upgrades that were to fix the things that I was breaking (diff output shafts mostly) but at the same time I was tired of muscling around those 295x18s up front. I got the upgrade and it sat in a box for a year as I was running a different car for the 2018 season and just did not want to look at the Z which was just waiting to break another output shaft. Well when I finally went and put it on in June/July of this year, I had a few parts problems with a fitting not being right Greg Childs after working with me to identify the wrong part sent me a nice new part out post haste. I then finally got it finished and installed. All I can say is that if you have been holding out on this upgrade DON‘T hold out any longer. The kit itself is very well thought out and engineered. The install is very straight forward, the wiring could not be any simpler (Just take photos of your switch wiring before disconnecting it when you pull the old steering column unlike me). We finally put it back down on the ground after chasing a few other upgrades and man…

I can now turn the steering wheel with 2 fingers instead of both arms and upper body. I can’t wait to get it out to an autocross and find out how it feels on course. I can’t thank Greg enough for being patient with me when the parts were wrong over a year after I ordered the kit and being responsive on the weekend on troubleshooting the problem.

Driving impressions from a seasoned S30 autocrosser:

“Hey guys – Just wanted to let you know how much I love my new steering setup. I had a race this weekend, and what a huge difference… just amazing. I learned real quick to use a light, easy hand, rather than the more aggressive approach like I used to. The track had some tight stuff that I was able to zip right through, and picked up some time. Didn’t have to wrestle the wheel at all – it’s phenomenal… I love it!”

“Thanks Greg – I got it all up and running shortly after emailing you, and wow!! What a difference it makes! The car doesn’t lose any feel at all but is much more drivable and parks like a dream!! Shame the UK weather stops me getting her out more!”

“Greg,
I love the power steering. Most of my trips are 300 miles one way and it is really nice to control the steering with fingers and to turn the wheel with my palm. It’s also much easier to keep the car controlled on bumps and in turning because neither affects the steering. I use to have to hold the wheel tight to keep it in line. It’s so easy to control now I don’t notice I have it. I was at a Z event and someone saw me turning the wheel with my palm and thought my car couldn’t be a 45 year old Z.”

“Just thought I’d check in and give you an update on your power steering kit. Nearly four years now of hammering on the track and it’s still working perfectly! I couldn’t imagine going back to driving the car without it, total game changer.” 
-DM, Tucson AZ


“I just took my ‘76 280Z on a test drive with your electric power steering installed. Your product performed flawlessly. Being a 280Z, which as you know has some heft, I always wrestled with it when cornering at lower speeds in a tight fast turn. I could not objectively tell how well it performs or how well it is balanced until this day. I am very pleased. As an aside I have owned two 1976 year automobiles that were rear wheel drive, and they both exhibited mild front wheel shimmy at certain critical speeds…your unit obliterated this issue…the steering wheel is rock steady at all speeds now! My driving enjoyment factor just went way up.”

“The p/s is now installed and working correctly, we have driven it for about 500km on some winding roads and found the driving much less tiring.”

“Electric assist power steering? I’ll be installing this on the 570YZ shortly. The unit mounts under the dash, not in the engine bay; also includes a variable-assist knob. This makes so much more sense than trying to source, install, and adapt the LS power steering and rack.” 
-JW, Scottsdale AZ


“I just got your electric power steering system installed in my V-8 240Z. I really can’t believe the difference it made. Being able to adjust the amount of power assist is truly amazing. No more wrestling with the wheel in parking lots. The installation went just as you stated it would. I didn’t have anybody to help, and was still able to get it completely installed in an afternoon. The wiring is extremely easy and the high parts quality is obvious. Please use me as a referral as being an extremely satisfied customer. I would also be happy to be contacted by potential customers to give hands-on feedback as to how easy the system is to install and operate, and what a positive performance benefit is achieved by its use.”
