if its maruti mpfi cars then the EPS can be retrofitted ...in other cars it can be done ...but its always better to buy a PS car .....i do know of people who have done PS for a gypsy and a DC designed tempo traveller for SRK

There is a TATA workshop in Chennai which does retrofitting of power steering for Indicas. Costs approx. Rs. 14K. I know a gentleman who got this done on his 1999 DLE.
