yeah, shud be at that cost. the pump can be either saga's, iswara's, wira's or even lancer's but the steering rack must be of the exact similar model to suit the fitting.
other than pump and steering rack, it will come with pwr strg fluid tank, oil cooler pipe and input as well as output pipes. that's why it is quite costly.
main reason why Saga LMST sells like hot cake is becoz it comes with PAS as an option.
other previous Saga/Iswaras with standard PAS were the 1.5I (Istimewa) specs including the CARES EFI version.
2 things to take note before installing is
1. insist on warrranty of at least a week, better if can get a month.
2. after get warranty, then check daily for signs of leak. when driving and making a turn, make sure the steering turns back to centre automatically. is the steering hesitate to centre itself, sumthing is not rite.
to spend about 1K on a 12-15K Iswara is not very wise when u plan to change to newer car very soon. used car dealers dont bother much whether ur car comes with PAS or not and they wont increase their offer of trade in value.
it will work with private buyers though; but 10 years old car do not attract much attention.
if u plan to keep the car for another 2-3 years (or forever), then i strongly advise u to do so.
* PAS = power assisted steering
CARES = Clean Air Regulated Emission System
