I suspect that Rob didn't make things difficult, and retained the stock steering. An Ls engined estate sounds fun :y

Was saying to BG earlier that I'm looking at.....honest only 'looking' at the Holden GTS, because that for me is as close as you can come to a V8 Omega....I know it's a bit bigger and it's  not an Omega,but hey when you're in love :-* :-* :-X

RHD omega steering box removed monaro rack in place with universal rod column to rack. Subframe modified. Carlton GSI rear subframe monaro diff also modified to bolt diff up. Fairly easy just don't get the time wanted to finish the project off within a month. All rads and air conditioning will be going back as rad and engine fan fits a treat.

No trailer! Going to be a daily driver.  :y

LS engines are used in far more cramped engine bays than an Omega. Just because GM decided it was marginal for a production car doesn't necessarily make it a problem for a one off. And as you say, a few louvres in the bonnet are quick cheap and easy to do if it proves a problem.
