Hicas Eliminator

Recommended Posts

No, aslong as you dont remove the hicas computer it will be fine just put in a lockbar and unplug the hicas plugs and tape them up somewhere. All you will have is the hicas light on your dash constantly on.

Sorry to revive an old thread!

I have just removed all the hicas system from my cefiro. I plan to use one of the hicas eliminator kits available on the web and I plan to plug up the holes left in the steering rack with bolts and the leftover lines going to and from the power steering pump and reservoir will plumb into a power steering cooler. Will I have any problems in doing any of this? i.e heavy steering?

Well I have done this now and it does make the power steering heavy all the time, so you lose the light feel at low speeds (under about about 60 kph I think it is).

I think its in your head.

If you didnt remove the HICAS ecu, and only unplugged it then it wouldnt have changed anything in terms of low speed driving.

Yes but the HICAS sees a fault, because the rack is disconnected, so goes into fail mode, applying minimal power assist to the steering, and the light comes on too (I removed the bulb).

    • TCU is enroute, should be here on Monday. Have just paid for a transmission locally, they've got to pull it out of the car and should be with me on Friday. Just getting little bits and pieces I need for wiring. Thinking about using a small bulkhead connector to run the transmission wiring through the tunnel as the trans plug is quite big.  So all going well i should have the box dummy fitted up next weekend and start wiring.
    • sure, just PM me your email....
    • Haha likewise, take my shit box for a spin and maybe you'll end up wanting a R33 shit box again lol...  
    • @Jasoncauser looks like a tight technical track, and definitely fun! Let's hope I make it to that day 😎  
    • The springs just lets the valve bleed off pressure/oil and it bypasses the feed gallery and heads back to where the pickup feed is On the LS the oil gets the the bearings...eventually  This vid explains the OEM pump well IRT the pressure release valve and how the bypass works The oil pressure light coming on intamitantly could just be a sticky valve, but, why pull something apart and not put something better in  I believe the low oil pressure light comes on somewhere between 5-10 psi Well will stick a gauge in after the installation to see what difference it makes at hot idle and higher RPM, and by high RPM I mean 6300 RPM.....LOL
