Default Daikei S-501 Steering Hub for Aftermarket Steering wheels

i got the steering boss from www.japanparts.com

Model: Daikei S-501 works on US WRX
Price: Approx $150 shipped to IL
Lead-time: About 10 days

I bought a Momo Corse wheel locally... i had problems using
the Momo hubs on my 98 Prelude in the past because I had
to modify the horn harness to make the horn sw to work.
The Daikei ones come with factory connectors for the horn
and SRS trick resistor...
so no SRS checklights as well and you will use the factory
coil harness thing behind the steering wheel so no special
wiring needed. the horn switch on the steering wheel
works flawlessly. (only thing you need to do is ground
the switch to the steering hub and plug the horn wire
onto the switch).

fit and finish was perfect. took no more than 30min to install.

this is a must-have mod for anyone using wider aftermarket
tires and agressive offset on their wheels. my steering nolonger
pulls to the grooves of the road...plus, the turn-in is very
agile and responsive.

Default AS-01

lately ive been noticing that the steering wheel was a little bit
off center more than i liked. the hub's splines probably did not
match up completely. for instance like this, Daikei makes an
adjustment centering hub so that you can turn up to 9 degrees
to center up the steering wheel completely. For Momo steering wheels like mine, I would use model AS-01.

purchased it again from japanparts.com should have it
some time next week. total with shipping about $40.

not bad. i dont think there is any store or manufacturer that has these in the US.

japanparts.com is great!

Thanks for the information.

Do you still have the use of your turn signals with auto cancel, as well as cruise control, with the new setup?

everything like factory less cruise control and airbag.
but, you can probably fabricate a switch to work the
cruise control. its only 4wires.

Received the AS-01 center adjustment spacer already yesterday, dang japanparts.com is FAST!

Anyway, installed the center adj. spacer and fixed my steering's
centering. its PERFECT now and that means, I am very happy.


man, Daikei should start selling these parts in the US.
their quality is top notch, much better than Momo's hubs
and very user friendly.

special thanks to japanparts.com for their great service.

If you don't mind me asking, who are you working with there at www.japanparts.com? I got an email reply today from one of their people who was not familiar with these Daikei items. I'd like to email dialog with somebody there who knows about these specific items!

I talk to Kanako or "Kana."

She's real good. I think the email address was kana@japanvehicles.com

I recommend you getting the AS-01 when you place the
order for the S-501 hub.

Just wanna chime in on a great product. I got my MOMO tuner wheel and CF horn button from japanparts, along with the Daikei s-501 and AS-01. It took a while to get but the quality is top of the line!

The daikei s-501 is "OEM" quality for a steering wheel adapter. Came with torx tool to remove airbag, airbag plug-n-play resistor, and horn plug-play. It's designed especially for subarus, and installation was a pleasant experience, no additional mods...everything just snaps together. AS-01 corrected my wheel's inherent crookness too, excellent build.

Daikei should really sell this stuff over here...makes installing aftermarket steering wheels a piece of cake.

Thanks to kenchan for his help and posting a great product!

I'll try to post pics when I get time to borrow my friend's digicam.

Default Daikei S-501 work with OMP Velocita?

Thanks for the info on the Daikei adapter. You guys have used it with Momo wheels. Any idea whether an OMP rally wheel will fit using the same adapter? I think Momo and OMP use the same pattern, but would like to be sure before I order the Daikei from Japan. Japanparts replied that they have no idea, as they do not get OMP wheels in japan.

Default kana's last day

Guys, tomorrow 10/03/03 is Kanako's last day at japanparts.com

She sent me an email this morning. I thanked her for her
superb customer service and support. She was the originator
for arranging those Daikei steering wheel boss (hub) and
centering adapters for me.


Please join me to say "good luck" to her. Please send her
an email wishing her the best from us Impreza family!!!

found some semi-useful sites for this Daikei Hub (because i'm looking into purchasing one myself )

Not sure if this is the model of the Subaru, but this is a good price:
http://www.metromotorsports.com/prod...sp?PprodID=157 $109.95 + 9.95 shipping

If you can read Japanese it tells you step by step how to install (on non-airbaged cars)
http://www7.ocn.ne.jp/~kamataka/boss3.htm

Nothin but the best for my scoob!

http://www.daikei-s.co.jp/airteki005.htm

Here's the actual daikei link to the subaru fitment chart. Too bad its in Japanese, huh? hahaha

Anyway, the chart looks like this.

SUBARU CARS
Impreza
GF, GC1, 2, 4 6 use Type156 or Type158
Ver4/GC8 use Type157
Ver5,6/GC; GF8 use Type501
GD, GG use Type501
GD,GG latest version use Type507


I think the 99-01 (Ver5,6/GC) and 02-03 (GD) use
Type501 (mine's a 02).

I also think the 04+ (GD) and the STI use Type507...but
don't quote me on it cause the chart above is for JDM cars.

I know for a fact that the STi's have different harness connectors
than my 02...but not sure about the non-STI 04's if they are similar to the 02's or not.

Default Daikei steering wheel hub

I did some research and it seems the Daikei hub for our subbies are superior to the sparco and momo hub (mainly because of the ease of installation and the attachment of the horn).

daikei -->

My question is, does this hub put the steering wheel closer or further away than the stock location??? I'm not sure if i want to get a dished wheel or semi-flat aftermarket steering wheel.

Any help is appreciated!

bump. anyone know where to find these?

i looked on japanparts.com to track down the part numbers, but the searches returned 0 results...I entered S-501 and AS-01 by the way.

I have an OMP steering wheel on my 03 wrx now, and i have an el cheapo hub that won't allow me to hook up my horn (my main concern).

Any help would be appreciated, as my daily driver is horn-less at the moment
