    Hi all,

    Been away for a while (had a baby) but starting to get back into doing stuff
    to the car... I'm eyeing up a GTi powersteering kit (pump, belt, rack etc)
    but wondering if anyone had any experience of fitting this to a non-GTi that
    didn't have power steering to start with?

    Welcome back!!! Congrats on the baby!
    Sounds like a lot of hard work for not much gain! Is power steering really
    that necessary? My new 205 :D doesnt have it, and its much heavier at the
    front than yours, and i dont really find it much of a problem. Although i
    suppose you get the benefit of a shorter rack.
    You might have problems because yours is an TU rather than XU. Where does
    the pump get its drive from? Where does it mount to (although that shouldnt
    be difficult to bodge as you've got loads more space under the bonnet). You
    need to get a good look at the kit to work out if its compatible!

    Thanks! :)
    That's one benefit yes - the other is to make it a bit lighter for my wife.
    I'm more thinking of doing it out of curiosity!!!
    That's the main thing I need to figure out - I know it should be possible
    but I don't actually know where it gets the drive from on a GTi? Can anyone
    tell me?
    That's what I figured...
    Ah well, if I can get it cheep enough, I may just get it while I can and
    figure it out later - If it can't be done, then I can just sell it again!

    Were there ever any late TU engined 205's that had PS?

    Not sure, perhaps name was different at export, Sacré Numéro et Génération
    had PS as standard. These two names lead to 1994-1998 205s.

    Well my old Dturbo took to drive froma pulley on the end of the camshaft,
    although the pulley was there anyway for the vacuum pump (which the GTi wont
    have). Cant remember how it worked on the 309 :(
    Fair enough, thats hopefully what i'm doing with an intercooler for mine :)
    No idea
