ok, so i have the pulley setup with no a/c or p/s, ive taken out the a/c lines back to the fire wall but i do plan on buying hybrids kit and putting a/c back in in the summer as well as p/s. With this said, i am not removing all the p/s components from my rack, so what do i need to do? i thought i had it figured out when i saw a pic where someone just looped the system by connecting the outlet and inlet on the p/s rack.....but now i saw someone with some sort of special kit that runs to a resevoir, and some other stuff, heres the link to that
http://hondamarketplace.com/showthread.php?t=563116

so my question is, which one do i do....im confused, cause with no power steering fluid or pump or lines or anything i should be able to just loop it together right? im just confused....keep in mind i want to put it back in within 6 to 12 months time:confused:

grab the helms manual for the integra and it will show you the lines and high pressure hose you need from the rsx type s or base model goes to the rack of the integra/civic. its not hard to run at all you need the power steering pump from an rsx and the high pressure line going from the rsx power steering pump to the rack of your car.

This doesn't really relate to your PS issue but more so your A/C. I bought the AC kit from hybrid for my DC and can't even use it so I'm lucky its winter. Your better off having a shop make you custom lines. Once I get time I need to take this up with hybrid racing as the lines are completely unacceptable and aren't even useable. One of the lines that plugs into the firewall/box doesn't even clear the firewall when it bends off.

I'd call them they seem to be a pretty stand up company and stand behind their products!

Your right they are and I need to find the patience and time to do so. I just think it means more to have a product that works out of the package then having good customer serivce. If the first was good the 2nd wouldn't have to be. Plus right now I can't afford to send half of my line kit back. Also I'm not sending the entire thing back cause its already in the car what a pain in the ass.

trek95: please check pm! I was trying to find out if your high-pressure hose is from a 02-04 type S?

You can loop it iwth a little reservoir. Just make sure you have fluid circulating in it.

YOu could probably loop it to that, the one hose that should come from the pump is quite large so you would need a reducer or too, but i'm sure its possible.
