Does anyone know what the stock sprinter power steering pump puts out for pressure?

We did find a restrictor in the return line, we removed it and it didn't really change much. Im guessing that this GM pump was made to work with a steering gear box which usually requires more volume and pressure than a rack style. I would have guessed it to have over sensitive steering but we have the opposite.
Gday from Australia. I have just found this thread as I am looking for a solution on the instrument cluster. The power steering on mine works perfect. I used a Holden commodore 6.0 litre L98 (and it has a rack and pinion in it) and put it in a Vito. So I just cut the lines and tigged them together and the merc rack works fine off the Holden pump.
I did some cool stuff like 3D printed the mount for the Holden DBW accelerator pedal to bolt onto the Merc firewall etc. and I have done 20,000 Klms in it without any issues.

I am really interested in buying an electronic unit to adapt my instrument cluster and would like to hear your thoughts on it. My van is an 07 as well.

Oh the vito doesnt have duallies but she does spin the wheels! More than a little bit....

Look forward to your thoughts.

Im not sure that the module by itself will do everything that you need. We built our harness to incorporate all the circuits needed to make the whole system function together.

Anyone know how to change the cluster from German to English?

I found a gas cluster in the UK and had it shipped here. Its a 2011 model that has the larger display in the center and its flashing a lot of warnings that are all in German.

Other than that the TACH now reads all the way to 7,000rpms and I have a real fuel gauge instead of the digital crap.
