    The tuck-away quart of oil made me laugh. You got rid of that problem I thought!

    lol ya the oil was there because when I put the engine in it burned oil, due to turbo seals being gone. so I swapped out the jdm turbos for usdm turbos, no more oil burn problem. I forgot to remove it but its not hurting any thing, lol.

    yes it has power steering but no a/c, I suppose it could have a/c but I like 260 air conditioning, lol.

    never put it on the dyno, but the mph calculator says between 380 and 420 whp depending on which calculator you use, based on car weight and trap speed.
    no it was a n/a diff I broke, couldnt take a 3500 rpm launch on a sticky track. the car was a gxl, I just made the decals up cause I thought it would be cool to ad a subtle touch to the car.

    I had the same problem, no one would answer me on the forums, lol.
    I think what I did was block the small pressure line down at the rack, the large pressure line threaded right into the jz power steering pump, I ran the return line up to a small custom mounted reservoir and from the res back to the return side of the pump.

    the res I used was off a 1g dsm, it was perfect, small enough to fit nicely with out taking up to much room.

    I read that you can plum the small pressure line to the return line and this will give you slightly stiffer steering for better feed back when driving.
    the way I have my power steering hooked up, the steering feels like an old oldsmobiles power steering, it requires no effort at all to turn it, which kinda sux for cornering, but I am a straight line guy any ways so it dosnt bother me that much.
