    hi, have been building a EG b16a2 for a while now and finally got round to putting it in the car and have found that the b16 power steering pump doesnt fit on to the 1.5lsi power steering pipe, was wondering what would be the best way to get around this problem. either buy a b16 pipe or find a pump that fits the engine and pipe. any help wpuld be appreciated on the subject as its holding the project up.
