HI I doing LHD convertion , so the only LHD quick rack is from EVO 6 RS , but its 1200 Eur, I found out that older gen1 steering fit, so does anybody know what Proton GTI rack is ? http://www.mynrma.com.au/.../satria-gti.htm this website says is 2.75, this one http://www.mynrma.com.au/.../satria-gti.htm 3.0 and other 3.3 ?

What about gen 1 GTi colt ? anybody knows ? :mrgreen:

From what I heard the Proton GTi has a 2.6 turn rack. You can ask on the protongti forums.
However the knuckles are different and the part that the tie rod connects to is shorter to my knowledge so you will get slower steering than a GTi.
ie, it will still be 2.6 turns, but the GTi will get more steering angle

You cant use gen1 mirage lancer racks in a gen2, been there and done that, all you can use is a rack from a EVO 4-5-6 in a gen2

I have a EVO 6 rs rack in my mirage and converted to non power steer and its fine, very quick but makes the mirages amazing to drive :D

You could also use FTO racks which are 2.6 turn and I believe should be identical to the Evo 4-6 non-RS/TME range

I have gen 1 manual rack now in my car and it fits. No need to convert. I was looking for LHD proton rack but cannot find any , those are very rare cars. Will see how it will drive

Correct they bolt straight in but it wont be any good in a gen 2 as it doesnt have the same length movement internally so it will have a shocking turning circle, believe me i have done it before, ran a EVO 3 rack for quite a while but the turning circle went out the window so i changed to a EVO 6 RS one and what a difference, and they are heaps quicker lock to lock also

I don't think protons were ever made in LHD - malaysia and UK are their biggest markets along with Australia and South Africe and they used to export to NZ - all RHD countries.

From what I remember the Satria GTi has a 2.6 rack and should be a direct fit into your gen 1

I use an evo 2 gsr rack 2.6 from memory vs the 2.8 standard?
Not a big change but the price was right at the time.
(Used in a proton/gen1)
