okay i pulled the oem high pressure line off and realized that the fitting will not work, it is too short and will not reach the threads. i looked through this whole thread, and some people mentioned welding a an fitting onto the oem hard line down by rack. But i never read someone actually committing to this, if their a reason i should not weld on a fitting to the oem hardline? i like the idea of having an oem fit on the rack with the seal than having the an line attached to it.

Don't bother trying to weld/braze a fitting on it...too hard to get it right the 1st time and not enough length to redo it again


These are the fittings from rack line to male 6AN and male 6AN to PS Pump

WRX & STi Rack side •14mm x 1.5 Male Bumpsteer with O-Ring ...... Earl's fitting part # EAR-991954

WRX PS Pump side •16mm x 1.5 Male with Dowty Seal Washer This may not be correct for 04-07 STi
....... If you have a 04-07 STi PS Pump get the MSI Power Steering Pump Adapter Kit from www.rallysportsdirect.com and use the 6an fitting they offer for the kit too

- rallysprotdirect part #MSI MSISUB01-00-030 and MSI GR-AN920-06

Okay i got a little mixed up from the get go because some people use a female fitting off the power steering line under the up pipe, and other people / manufactures replace that line and run their braided line all the way to the power steering rack? And the fitting that goes directly into the steering rack is what you stated above (ear-991954, 14mm x 1.5). Sorry to ask again, i just want to make sure i get this right the second time around, i had everything i need except for something to connect my line to my steering rack.

I have a 2005 STi and bought the Techna-Fit line. I know it is intended for use with the WRX only. From what I've gathered in this thread and a few others, one of these 4 adapters they sent:

will work to get me from the pump to the line.

Then I just need to buy one of these:

or the Earl's equivalent,

Which will attach to the fitting on the short hardline coming off the rack, seen here:

Is that correct?

Default 2002 and EJ205

Doing this in an 02 wrx this weekend or maybe sooner depending on when i can get parts. I will post pics, and install info. This is because I swapped the engine to an EJ205 and want to use the power steering pump that was on the new engine which hooks up slightly differently than the normal USDM 02 wrx power steering pump. If anyone has any insight or info for this specific application please let me know! I will let you know how everything works out
