Good metaphor, quoted for the truth.

I looped the lines on my 90 as well, love it.

Powerstering FTW. I couldn't drive without it. All you no PS, no A/C on your DD are nuts. I'll sacrifice 2hp and 20 pounds for PS on anything.

+1 for powersteering.

I've driven an MX5 without P/S and did not like it, anyhow I'm used to the feel from the P/S now. The A/C on the other hand can go take a dump!, i mean do I really need A/C in the UK??

No.

Just a heads-up for anyone looking to delete PS but keep the AC:

ebay #280212669314

I think Rosenthal Mazda sells these new for ~$99.

edit: This isn't my ebay auction, but I did buy one from this seller for really cheap.

No PS from the factory for me. And mine is my DD.

The miata is definitely a car that doesn't need power steering. If my ex was able to drive the car around well enough that says enough. Power steering in a miata is for little guys....or lady girls...

I had no p/s, but removed it, and bought a powered setup. The effort was so much that the previous owner destroyed the steering wheel - separated the cover from the core.

After removing the unpowered rack, I'm debating whether to put it back, or depower the new unit. I think the steering effort may have been too high due to a bad alignment, as the car didn't want to stay on track very well. It wanders when centered.

Should I just loop the lines, get it aligned and try it that way? I'd hate to depower the rack, only to find out I prefer it the other way and have no way to restore it.

The 90 has P/S and AC, the 91 came factory with AC but no P/S. I am considering a AC delete.
