The awesome handling by the custom suspension will suffer greatly without it. As far as weight savings, unless your taking off unsprung weight, like wheels/tires, meh, not a big savings.

Trust me, O, I lived/breathed/ate/drank the tuner world from the early 90's until now.
I know what you mean bro that is why I'm going to keep the power steering because it is a bitch to turn it LOL

I noticed significant power changes immediately but I want to use this as a drift toy also and round the track so I'll be keeping that as far A/C goes the SR20DET with a custom intercooler deletes the A/C compressor, so that was gone and the compressor basically had no point being there, I removed the whole thing with the bracket

We'll see how it goes I'm still in testing it out phase ... Appreciate the input bro

Looks awesome! I'll be expecting a white knuckle, hair raising, drift filled ride when I grace the lone star state in Sept!

I know there is a way to keep the A/C, I've seen it done, but it might be more trouble than it's worth. Now that I know you're going to drift, you DEFINITELY need that power steering!

I got a quote from an A/C guy and he said somewhere around $1K and this is my friend LOLOLOL dont wanna imagine how much the rest would be cuz it would have to be a custom job done it

For power steering though, yeah I'm going to keep it ... I just wanted to see the power gain on it but to be honest like you mentioned it's not worth only if I was drag racing it but then I would have gotten a muscle car instead

I don't like body kits on any car but that thing is sexy.
