    I have a Megasquirt in my Westfield, they are good bits of kit
    To be honest the steering was so good (after he had it professionally setup) it would of been a waste of money to fit power steering, but if we had then we would of fitted electric system from a Corsa.

    Remember that you will need to show a collapsible column for IVA

    Yep thanks, I know about the collapsible requirements for IVA

    What is a common column that gets used on new builds?

    Depending on the steering shaft angles you can often get away with the combination of knuckle joints that would deflect and a collapsible wheel boss.
    BTW the Corsa B EPAS works well in many applications.

    Thanks - can you shed any light on what is needed for the Corsa B EPAS?

    Thanks

    So basically a complete column like this
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-...19.m1438.l2649

    And a gizmo to trick the ECU like this
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corsa-B-C...MAAOSwxGRZgYFb

    Is that right?

    Basically yes and yes.
    Except the one you listed is a Corsa C not B column, similar but not quite the same.
    As you're probably going to have to make your own brackets it probably wouldn't matter.
    My controller is an automatic one which senses the load rather than having a twiddle pot.
    Try and get one that comes with the harness plugs too if you can.

    If you are going to run megasquirt then they have a module which will controll the power steering automatically linked to the speed you are traveling.Big Tony fitted this system successfully with his mega system.
