its not so much the weight as it is the paricidic lose from the belt drive and what not, but thats what i figured, i was looking at an SE-R without P/S but it will be a daily driver and i will need it.91sentra said:i would guess that the main benefit would be the weight loss. also its harder to steer when not in motion. Try parallel parking a car without p/s.
but you gotta remember that the AC works on a clutch so there is almost no power loss while it is not engaged. The ac weighs around 60-65 lbs with everything.1.6pete said:its not so much the weight as it is the paricidic loose from the belt drive and what not, but thats what i figured, i was looking at an SE-R without P/S but it will be a daily driver and i will need it.
but if i can work the price down i could just install it myself.
Tavel said:i can see two reasons to replace it
a. you want every bit of free hp you can get
b. the power steering broke and you dont want to replace it
if u want to take your power steering out do the following:StevenLK said:well, how and what do they have to do to take it out. dont u need a idle pulley in its place??.
What belt would that be? and where would i get it?tolis said:3)replace your belt with a smaller one
WTF are you spewing dude! you CAN'T replace the belt with a smaller one, how would you adjust the tension??? have you even looked at it? the PS pump IS the belt tensioner. you can't just remove it, you have to replace it with a stock idle pulley/tensioner. with no tensioner you can't even get a belt onto the pullys...and if you could, it would be far too loose to even work.tolis said:if u want to take your power steering out do the following:
1)take out the power steering pump
2)drain all the liquid from the steering
3)replace your belt with a smaller one
its so easy :thumbup:
