Wouldn't even think of attempting that.

Doubt the rack would fit, space likely not there for the motor section. Need the steering column as well, and that's before trying to figure a way to jury rig enough electronics to make it work at all.

Beside the fact that it's not even a very reliable part on the MK3.

Enjoy the mechanical end of the car vs the electronics, you really wouldn't like it, + it'd take away the character of the svt w/ mechanical grip & feel. If you want to swap something, install a torsen diff.

I would say that's the greatest feature of the SVT is the steering feel, why are you looking to replacing with electronic steering?

Exactly. The SVT has some of the best feel and precision of any fwd rack that I have ever driven.
