Since the general consensus is that the factory powered rack is "overpowered", is there any way to correct this, short of depowering? Something like a smaller pulley to reduce the output of the pump? Some sort of flow restrictor?

I put P/S on my car because the manual rack was very hard to turn. It feels like it's grinding a bit when you turn the input shaft. I haven't yet bothered to open it up and see if it's bent, or just needs to be lubed.

If it feels like it's grinding then somethings 'wrong'.
I've depowered my rack FM Style and it's smooooth.
I also removed the AC, all crap in a car in Ireland and we have some of the BEST corners in Europe !

Spartan, around here saying "@rift" is like saying ****, and that's rude, except here **** is just fine because it's just a ******* word, but "@rifting", well that's just fucked up.

Also, best not to whine on your 6th post because....by the way, have you met hustler and some of the other boys....well, you'll find out.

Hahaha, yes, you are definitely in the wrong place. It's the internet, who the **** cares what you say? You're a whiny bitch. See, now don't you feel better now that I have said that?

P.S. In case you have forgotten where the shift key is, there are two of them. One next to the "z" key and one next to the "/" key. Use them.


On the more productive side. I looped my lines and the difference is like the first time you **** a bitch without a rubber. Amazing.

That explains everything, thanks for clearing all of that up, but you still need to zoom in on the shift keys.

I'm depowering my rack tomorrow as well as testing out some superpro polyurethane steering rack bushings.
I'm using the new miataroadster rack depowering kit. Pretty simple. Just uses bolts instead of the looped lines.

How much PS fluid should be left, or should I drain it?

Man, I hope not. I'll try them. If it feels like crap, then I'll loop the lines.
