Yes I had to use a cable tie to tie the PAS pipe closer to the firewall. My biggest issue with the branch however was that it touched the underside of the car, especially when I reverse. Had to heat and bend but it's mostly sorted now.

Had no problems with the power steering, but i did however have the reverse vibration issue which is easily solved by filling the bottom engine mount
