    okay, whats that coil looking thing in front of the radiator. it looks like its hooked up to the power steering system. well anyways, its in the way of my intercooler, so can i take out the "coil" and just use a regular hose to reconnect it to the p/s resovoir?

    I think that it is a cooler for power steering fluid.
    You could probley cut and relocate it ( I dont think it has much pressure)
    If it doesent have high pressure and you dont over heat the power steering,
    I dont see why you couldent cut and join them together.

    just get rid of the power steering. I do believe you can just connect a hose on one side run it to the other, looping the system, I dont see a need for it anyway, oh and cut the belt too to get rid of the ps... then it wont circulate and you wont have to worry about over heating the fluid
