Finally. Gen1 Power Steering Delete Kit Available Soon!!!

Condor Speed Shop is soon coming out w/ a UHMW Power Steering Delete kit for the Gen1 MINI & is gauging interest.
So please post if you want or need one.

Note:
Expected Steering resistance will be BETWEEN a GOOD PUMP & a DEAD PUMP in!

Why get one? A few good reasons below:
- Pump & Fan assembly is known to fail. New pumps are no different. Many have gone thru multiple pumps.

- Countless incidents of fire caused by the faulty pump. Check here & NAM.

- The PS system, its hoses & tank leaks easily. Eliminate them permanently.

-Kit is REVERSIBLE.
Should you decide to go back to stock, you can put back a working pump in.

-Relatively easy to install. Just remove the 2 hose banjo bolts on the rack, put the kit in place of the hoses.

-Shave some weight if you wanna extract the entire Powersteering system off the car.

-Get a more connected & direct steering feel. It will have greater turning resistance, YES, but NOT like having a DEAD Pump in. Ask e30/36, z3 & Miata guys who've done this.

- Affordable Temporary or Permanent Fix.
Condor is looking to offer the kit around or under $50 depending on interest. A group buy will be coming up very soon! So, please post on this thread if you want one. Don't wait for your pump to fail. You can just get 1 & store it for future use.

A new MINI-specific link will be put up soon by Condor Speed Shop to take orders.

Please note that I've no commercial involvement whatsoever w/ Condor. I'm just a concerned Gen1 owner who has been frustrated & saddened by seeing all these threads about this failure. My PS is working fine & I'm expecting a kit promised by Condor once testing is done.
This post is a humble way of THANKING Condor Speed Shop for helping the Gen1 MINI owners get an option for the PS woes.

This kit won't have been developed this easily nor this soon w/o the generosity of fellow member, c0op3r. He not only donated a working 06 rack but also shipped it to Condor for R&D. Gratitude should go to these 2!

Again, post if interested. Thanks!!!!

For all the reasons stated above, this kit has long been anticipated & similar threads on other MINI forums have drawn immense interest. But, not here? Well, there will be updates, just the same, once the kit is out, which is very soon.

Interest registered! Currently looking to replace the reservoir and pipes which have reached EOL on my 2003 Gen 1, so if this kit is available soon, that'd be a good option....
