    5MGE Power steering reservoir on 1JZGTE?

    Hey all,

    Forgive me if this information is somewhere, but I just can't find it. My 1JZ did not come with a PS reservoir. I am told you can use a 5MGE PS reservoir, but what is needed to make this work? Please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    I use a modified B13 Sentra bracket and reservior which are pretty common at pick'n'pull. Mods are to cut the fill tube on the bottom and rotate about 180 degrees. The bracket needs the slot part re spot welded at a better angle. The bracket bolts to the apron using existing holes as is.

    I'd think a 5M would be a tough one to use since it doesn't have a hose connection and the fill comes directly out the bottom.

    I would go walk around pull a part and look at other models/makes. You should be able to find one that will work.

    Thanks for the info. I will look into the B13 res, but for now I'm looking to see if I can use parts I already have. Has anyone used a 5M res on a 1JZ?

    Andrew,

    What happened? Did you not get power steering after your swap either?!? Hopefully that was all that was left undone on yours.

    My engine from the importer did not come with a PS res. I may be interested in the 2J res. How much shipped to Chicago?
