So is looping the lines feel any different than just pulling off the belt? I never got around to taking off the PS crap from my turbo ranger, just cut the belt off. Even in full power form with all hydraulics it still felt just fine, even sitting still.

Tried pulling the belt on my friends Miata and I almost wrecked the ******* thing attempting to go around a corner... It was 4 fists full to turn at 40mph!

Taking the belt off is nothing like looping the lines.

quick DIY.... I dont have any additional "protection" under my car is the belly pan stock or aftermarket? To loop the lines is it a quick snip snip with tin snips and put say 5/16" hose in between?

alright so i drove the car with just the red lines looped and power steering pump removed. I have no idea what everyone is talking about it feels GREAT! No reason to loops the blue lines in my opinion.

im running no A/C, no PS. Looped lines in red and love it. Amazing how much road feel you get!! I could feel my street tires slipping around a corner getting on the highway!
