Default Power steering pump relocation

Does anyone know if a bracket has been made to relocate the power steering pump to where the A/C pump is mounted? I like power steering and would like to keep it.

Have you ever driven a miata without power steering? It's amazing. It was like the first time having sex without a condom.

I want to go back to PS. To each his own, just felt I had more control not having to muscle the wheel around. I think finesse is much more accurate.

I think you're doing something wrong if you have to muscle it around. Any time you need real finesse, you are moving at more than 2 mph, and any time you're moving at more than 2 mph, it takes no effort to turn the wheel.

JMHO

What tires you running? You Auto-x? Is your local Auto-x mostly high speed or very technical?
