    I was wondering if any one knew whether the rack and pinion out of a delslow would fit in a dc integra?
    ** all integras have power steering and this delsol in the junkyrad doesn't and i want to swap them so i dont have p/s.

    I think it will. Would probably have a tighter steering ratio too.

    you will need the ENTIRE steering setup
    you will end up with a looser steering ratio
    an easier way is to just loop the lines on the power steering
    have it done like that on my sol... lots of other people have done it... it works well :)

    Just run a hose from the input to the output?

    thats the short cut way to do it
    the better way is to do the loop from inlet to outlet but add a T with a line going up to a small reservoir cup as a breather / expansion chamber
    that way the fluid doesnt build up any pressure as it can in a closed system
    fill the line comming up from the T to just about the bottom of the reservoir
    this will keep air out of the system giving smooth consistant steering feel

    its a little more involved but well worth it


    i can give you more detailed instructions or information if you need it

    oh and a honda clutch master reservoir cup works perfectly
