After doing this mod, the revs climb noticeably faster! Its hard to tell but there is a hp gain from less parasitic drag.

As far as driving goes, the car feels like a dream! I feel like I am the car!

Im going to go under my car when I get the chance and remove the rest of the power steering lines. Im going to see if I can drain the rest of the fuid out of the rack from the bottom.

so a 50.5 belt fits either k20a2 or k20z1 crank pulley with a/c+p/s deleted?

I will post a pic of the Duralast serpentine belt part number that fits. This is for PS delete only. 653K7 Duralast

Also, if you dont bleed most of the fluid out, you'll be like WTF! The steering wheel will take hercules himself to turn it. After you bleed as much fluid out as you can, the steering wont be bad at all.

Use a 12mm wrench and remove the nut on the left side of the steering rack. Use something to catch the fluid. Turn the wheel left and right all the way, until no more fluid comes out.


Based on this information, if you bleed out the P/S fluid from the rack, do you need the loop or can you just buy a 16x1.5mm and 14x1.5mm cap/plug and remove the lines?

Update... I just completed this DIY. Instead of the AN fittings, I used a 14x1.5mm bolt and a 16x1.5mm bolt since I drained all the fluid out of the rack. Also, to pull the 2 lines in the rack, I needed 14mm and a 17mm crowfoot socket. Other than that, the DIY is spot on.

Biggest PITA was pulling the old lines out... Be patient and you can get it done. Last note, I had a hell of a time trying to find the right size belt. I'd recommend the KTuned EP3 adjustable idler pulley as it solved 3 weeks of headaches and talking with auto parts folks that don't understand what you are doing.

I just got the Ktuned ac/ps delete kit (waiting on mail) and I'm finally gunna get this done. I remember reading something about wether looping the system with fluid is better or worse then just plugging it after draining the fluid. I was planning on just plugging like you but for some reason second guessed myself upon ordering. Could someone enlighten me once again?

I didn't loop because I drained all the fluid out the rack... I wish I found better bolts to cap it, but I haven't had any issues. I read it was much harder to turn the wheel leaving the fluid in vs draining it.

I'm actually happy I did this. Car feels great while in motion above 10mph lol. Parking is a bitch, but manageable.

Funny you brought this up... I've had my disconnected and had the plug just sitting in the bay for over a year. I recently been having electrical issues causing my car to bog/fuel cut. I'm not sure if this is the issue, but the plug was exposed to the outside elements. I taped it off and relocated to a spot where it won't be exposed to the elements.
