Has anyone completed this swap?

Is there a bracket to retain both ac and ps with a sri? All seem to either delete ps pump, relocate ps and delete ac or convert to elec-hydro steering. Ideally one that would put the ac on the passenger side, since there's already ps bracket thats available.

Also anyone other than Hank Iroz make the swap parts? Specifically the pan.

I started it, the stopped when I realized there is not much more potential and torque than a well tuned 1.8T on standalone. You will have to custom make many parts. Hank is the only one I know of who is making the oil pan. Priced at nearly 1K, I would give it a shot making your own.

I'm ok with most of the custom parts. Plan is to make the pan and if doesn't work, buy a pan. But the last lead time was 6months. Emailed Iroz a couple days ago, still no reply.

The main thing that's stopping me is the intake manifold. I need both PS and AC. The only solution to keep both, but still not ideal, is the Mr2 elec-hydro PS pump.

Nothing beats $300 for a very low mileage engine, less than 10kmiles even as low as 2kmiles. But without a proper PS solution, prices could jump to Vr6 prices.
