Has anyone removed their power steering here completely or just not runnning the belt to it? If so please let me know if it gave any benefits worth the hassle.

Thanks

there is a thread that we were debating this a few months back. Take the belt off first and see how you like it. If you do there are ways to take it off and still keep the rack lubed

Ehh. I bought the kit from Stealthmode performance and it still isn't working right. I can't keep anyt fluid in it. It's leaking out of the hole that they said to leave open....?

couldn't a 7thgen convert to the electric like on the k-motor si?
Civic rack&pin don't really need to be powered, but do need to retain the fluid...bummer these models didn't offer a manual rack.

You can just loop the lines or just cap them off. The myth that the "Whole" steering mechanizim has fluid in it, is just that. A myth. There is a piston setup that moves about 2 inches back and forth that aids in the steering. I have been taking mine off for years. Without issue. The power steering bracket is pretty heavy in itself. Good luck.
