Unless I have missed something, the racks should be the same from 90-97. The cooler line stops at the end of 1995, but the rack remains the same.

Any reason why? You'd probably be happier with your depowered rack

No, what I'm saying is the depowered POWER rack has a quicker ratio, so most people prefer that as opposed to the slower manual rack.

So if you want a unpowered rack, it's usually better just to keep the powered one and modify it.

Umm... Yeah, that's not real depowering. It's going to feel like *** compared to an actual depower.

Good luck getting the car back on the road! What are you replacing your turbo with! That month is totally going to feel like a year! Follow the depower instructions! Much better than just looping lines! Indeed, don't screw anything up!
