    Does anyone know where I can get a kit to remove my power steering stuff? Can I just yank all that crap out? After the swap, I couldn't accomodate it so it's just disconnected and just sitting there. It makes squeaky noises sometimes because it hits the belt. No power steering feels way better. I don't want to hear you pussies complaining about no power steering either so don't even post. It pisses me off knowing that it's still there and useless.

    My engine bay is crowded as it is. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    yes but the power rack has a closer ratio (requires less movement of the steering wheel to get the same ammount of movement at the wheels)

    so a looped power rack has all the feel, none of the weight, and turns "quicker" :)

    hmmmm, when i did it to my prelude i didn't do anything but rip the shit out- jesus i had no idea i needed to do anything :shrug:


    -but wait is it necessary to do those modifications for safety? or is that just to retain some of the ease of power steering without the parasitic drag of the pump?? HELP

    oh, so to completely whore this post for a minute, the way I did the prelude could have possibly resulted in a loss of steering at some point? shit i'm glad it didn't happen to me

    basicly the fluid lubes the gears
    without it you could get several things to happen
    binding, breaking, etc .... or nothing at all
    its a roll of the dice

    :thumbsup:

    and if you can .... do the breather .... without it the steering gets a little tight if your going through a LOT of corners

    i will be doing the breather soon... its really annoying and can get unsafe
