Question Power steering plumbing question

I have the V8R PS kit for my NB swap. I cannot figure out where all of the lines and fittings go. Does anyone have pics or a diagram you'd be willing to share?

You might check out the Flyin Miata V8 installation guide.
Don't know if their kit is the same as the V8 Roadster parts but it might help as both are connecting the same components.

Not familiar with the LFX pump, but one connection will be the outlet for the high pressure side of the pump. The other will be a return. I'd also consider a power steering cooler if you are installing the system from scratch - not sure if the kit allows for that.

One of the pics in my post on PS shows which side of the NB rack is the high pressure side, it's the one with the braided hose going to it

Thanks pj_mcgarvey and BGordon for your replies. I plan to tackle the power steering this weekend.

The fitting on the left with the short piece of tubing on it is the low pressure return. The fitting on the right is the high pressure feed.

I attempted to change mine over to all AN fittings and lines. But then I had this interference.


So I left the stock return line in place. That actually worked better with my cooler anyway.

the space where the hard lines live gets pretty crowded. The braided lines are going to be a pain.
