    Can someone explain the procedure for this?

    How do you loop the power steering and get rid of the pump and pulley?

    For a Acura integra LS 1994 and up.

    good thread, did you do it the way it was first described in that thread? or did you make any changes?

    as far as what exactly????
    the feel is much better
    it is a little harder to manuver at low speeds but its tollerable
    with the breather it should be a little smoother and easier at low speeds
    im not a fan of power steering it generally compensates too much and you lose a lot of road feel

    Did you pull the engine to loop the PS, or did you just remove the IM?

    was a little messy but easy enough

    Cool, that sounds like something I can afford to do :) Thanks for the insight.
