As to the power steering, all I can say is that it takes what seems like a million cycles of cranking the wheel back and forth, lock to lock, with the front end off the ground, until you get all the air out of it. Have a helper watch the fluid level so it doesn't get low and they can watch for air bubbles as they shake out.

If your power steering return line isn't flowing well, get a longer piece of sturdy hose from NAPA and route it a bit more gently than the one IPF includes.

And make sure to route that oil drain hose well away from the air conditioning lines. The braided steel on the drain line makes for a great saw against the aluminum of the a/c lines...found that one out the hard way.

My pump blew up for no reason a year ago , I went to the store for groceries and started it and it was a goner , They replaced it under warranty, my car was all stock , just letting you know they can go bad .

Mine went bad 1400 because they had to move the super charger and replace a pulley. I should be good as soon as IPF gets my tune

Ok got the car back today supercharger is running perfect! Dear god at 5k she pulls so hard. I haven't done a proper start from 0 yet but I broke loose is second 3 times today just getting above 4k. The push is really torqey when you start getting up there but there's also more power than before down low even with the rx intake manifold isolator and the stage 3 ported intake manifold and ported throttle body.

Yes a big one because they effect down low and gap the bridge between non boost and boost.

That's good to know.

I think SIXJAK tried and something wasn't fitting but I'd ask Jesse to be for sure
