Electric power steering pump

I found a 12 volt powered electric power steering pump on ebay, $300. It is from a Renault Kangoo. I had a custom hydraulic hose made to connect to my steering rack for about $70. I made a metal bracket insulated with 3/8" rubber to reduce vibration and noise. I plan to only have the pump run when the motor is below 4000 rpm, about 35 mph.
