so what you guys are saying is that if the ps is properly removed it is easier to steer than if the car was shut off or the belt was removed, correct?

btw, how necessary is the reservoir when using the breather lines? I mean, if you run the two lines up vertically 6 inches and then cap them each with a little air filter, will you be fine, or do you still have to worry about it squirting fluid up there?
With hardly any fluid in there, a few hoses going to 1 breather filter setup should be fine. Just test it and go from there, but I'd imagine you'd be fine.

Yes, you're not fighting all that fluid and those lines and the pump.

so to make this breather setup, would you just use the stock reseviour and drill holes in it to attach multiple hoses or what? also how many lines would you need going to this? in your guide (kazespec) from what i can tell you just looped two lines. are there other lines that need dealt with?

there are only 2 hoses, the return and the feed. don't use the stock reservoir, what i would do is get the clutch fluid reservoir, a T fitting, and the rest of the stuff inside my guide. attach the clutch fluid reservoir to a line connecting to the top of the T fitting, and the other 2 lines from the rack to the sides of the T. put a pinhole in the top of the reservoir so it can breathe.
