Power steering change

Hey guys, my 91 mustang has a "standard rack and pinion" It is not power but manual. It was installed for drag racing, as car was not needed to turn. I want to go back to a power steering rack. What is needed to go back to this setup as far as parts? I assume

-Pump
-Rack
-????

Is there an electric kit you can buy or an after market one?

Thanks in advance!

Nikon, do I have to bend my own lines or the lines that would come with it would be standard? Wish I could find someone or a page that shows someone doing it. So all that is needed is rack, pump, bracket, lines and a larger belt? I wonder if there is a kit that can be bought or should I just hit the junk yard.

the lines would be standard for your car, and if you want you can spend the extra money and get the stuff new too. or search ebay, and local yards and get what you need.

Just contacted someone who is parting out, he seems to have it all. $75 for everything.

in terms of finding a parts car or trying to visit a junk yard I would suggest looking on partingout.com where salvage yards are parting out whole cars. if the mustang year you need isn't listed you can create a parts wanted listing - I used this tool to find a thin piece of chrome and it I had to offers to sell and choose the one closes to me. I don't think I would have ever been able to go to a junk yard and ask "hey do you have that little piece of chrom on the hood for ...." it just doesn't work like that.

Anyways I think you could use it, good luck
