I'd seen numerous electric over hydraulic systems, and most with good results.

However the newer electric assist ones have caught my eye.

I'd seen this one, surprisingly cheaper than most others like the EPAS.

I'd actually seen this video just the other day. He actually had an electric over hydraulic in the Miata at some point before this.

Chevy Cobalts (later 00's) also have an electric column that can be found for cheap.

Edit: Looked up the years for the Chevy columns I mentioned.
Part Compatibility:
2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR - exc SS
2007-2010 Pontiac G5
2005-2006 Pontiac Pursuit
2003-2007 Saturn Ion

Toyota Prius are also an electric column, and those are pretty abundant as well. Guess I'll start looking into the pricing of the harness/plugs, control modules and power steering modules between them.

Numerous Ebay sellers selling complete Prius kits for ~$250. I'd want to see about how to add the potentiometer to adjust wheel weight.
