    But From looking on eBay I see 2 different types of rack, one like the nova and one with hydraulic pipes attached.

    3 racks in the corsa b. Completely manual like mine is and like a nova, manual column and manual rack. Then some car had hydralic power steering, normal coloum but have a hydro rack, these are the ones with the pipes. Then later cars had epas it's all contained within the column and the rack is completely manual. The epas rack is the one to get as its manual when attached to a normal column

    Yes the epas rack is quicker lock to lock than the manual one is. As the manual one gives more mechanical advantage seeing as theres no assistance, in turn it ends up being more turns lock to lock

    It's an upgrade worth doing if you find yourself needing a rack or if you going to do a lot of track driving, obviously the trade off is sterring is heavier for daily use
