Electric Power steering pump on a calibra turbo

by nigelh » Sun Jun 13, 2010 9:10 am

Does anyone know if the electric power steering pump from a astra H would make enough pressure to run the power steering and ram clutch for the transfer box on a calibra turbo?
Thanks

not sure is my answer but i think i have read that you are looking for about 800 psi for the transfer box to work iirc

Is that the txb pressure after the accumulator? If so the pressure on the p/s fluid side would be lower.

Dan went down the route of a locked box though due to fitting an electric pump afaik
