Right now I'm using the OE PS pump from the Aristo and since those had progressive power steering, but my Cressida doesn't, the pump doesn't work right. I've been told the fix is to get an IS300 pump, so I'm going to give it a go. 

I'll probably get a reman for that lifetime warranty or whatever.

doesn't work?  did you disconnect your PPS solenoid on your cressida rack or something?

i had mine disconnected and it was real heavy steers at low revs, but was good on highway. i connected it and then it was like a cadillac but a little too sensitive on the highway, but whatever. the camber dulls it out. shortly thereafter my pump died, shit itself everywhere lol

There was a video on YouTube by BackyardBuilt that explained the issues that he experiencing with the Aristo pump and it was the same issues as I am experiencing. basically dead spots where the steering would go from easy to hard back to easy as he was steering. All he did was swap the Aristo pump for an IS300 unit and it steered like a cadillac.

yeah i was going to say, it looks easier to just remove the solenoid bits.

but you said you didnt have pps, did you disconnect it or swap to a different rack? all US x8s have PPS.

has anyone looped back to the idea of replacing the pps brain with the rheostat to dial in your own steering effort?

^^ I think about once in a while, but as far as I know no one ever posted one that didn't eventually burn up/out.

 

 

*edit Woah I just thought about it again,  I wonder if thats a signal my ecu could output


 

why do we spend our time and money on shitty cars that cant love us back?

I don't have a clue on that one.

That is why I am going to the MR-S pump, because it as a built in controller, that only needs a signal from the trans speed sensor, and automatically varies output.

 

I would suggest buying the factory manual for that car, and read up on what kind of signals make it work.

Then see if you can adapt something like an RPM switch to shift from lots of assistance to minimal assistance.

my JZX81 has a specific controller for the PPS.  has a "GT" sticker on it and a different PN.  I wonder if it just has a different progressive curve to make it feel stiffer and therefor "sportier."

i thought mark (aphxero) did it with his or had mentioned this before?

 

i have a x7 rack in my x8, with the x8 solenoid. when deleted at the rack it was not working (duh) i would imagine an aftermarket ecu could be utilized to control this at the rack, if you had a speed sensor, or could go off rpm even.  im sure theres many ways to try and go about this...theoretically, as i have never futz'd with anything other than an oem ecu cause im basic

finally hit the slopes again, even though i wasnt feeling very good, still did a number of laps and then drove er home.  also going to go na 2j, as a friend of his got rear ended and we are going to make use of the bits.  heres some snaps a friend took at the event.  clutch pedal adjustment still needs to continue as shifting into second in the higher revs, she doesnt like..at all. even after 2 amsoil trans fluid changes.

Love the last pic of the ass squat.

Looks like a really fun day.




take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.
