No power steering isn't an issue until you're in a parking lot and you try to "whip" into a parking spot and you've forgotten you don't have power steering. The number of turns is the same lock to lock, but the effort is much higher at low speeds.

MP2050, what do you mean by "what were u running"? It's a road race car, not a drag car. If set up for drag, I'd imagine this to be a mid to low 14 second car (145 at the wheels, less than 2200 pounds).

I still drive the car on the street :)

That's what I figured as far as the loss of power steering. I'm just trying to get something organized in my head as to what I want to change in my car this summer to get it ready for solo I or some other kind of road racing next season. I won't have that kind of power though, but I'll take what I can get while I'm in college, and it's really just for fun. Do you still have all of your interior? A/C and cruise, etc? I was planning on taking out my carpet and the tar stuff underneath sometime this month before I get my cage put in. I'm just looking for anything to bring the weight down to make up for the lack of power, I'm even going to lose a few pounds myself if I can :)

Thanks NiN_00. That "dumb old E model" will be a great sleeper once the DET is in it. The power steering rack in the E's has a different ratio, so it's easier to turn, but it's more turns lock to lock. I was considering getting that rack, but mine is bearable (until I need to parallel park).
