No you can't close the hood. You have to notch it.

Someone please clarify this subject. Does power steering work with EKK1 mounts with clearance for the motor to move a small amount under the hood?

And does the skeleton definitely have to be cut??

:S :S :S

WE SHOULD KEEP IN MEMORY THIS THREAD TOO..
From : http://k20a.org/forum/showthread.php?t=12251

If you plan to autox, I highly believe that you will absolutely love adding P/S into your vehicle, especially if you have a slow manual rack. Not only was I not able to turn my car fast enough in slaloms w/o P/S, but the effort required was unbearable. I basically had to drive slower because my hands/arms were not physically fast enough to turn the wheel quick enough in tight slaloms, even though the car itself was much more capable. I debated on trying out a Quaife gear set, which would definitely decrease the steering wheel revolutions for a set wheel output; however, I knew that would just add more difficulty with the steering as that gear set would create a mechanical disadvantage for the driver. Since I've added the P/S, my car is ridiculously easy to drive fast and in control when on the limits; and when just daily driving, the car seemed to transform into a luxury car. Additionally, you know how when you run a lot of camber (to have a nice setup for autox for an ideal contact patch), but then when daily driving your car darts all over from left to right due to slight road inconsistencies, well, I can't say that has completely gone away, but the P/S definitely dampens that effect GREATLY! Anyway, onto the install...

Remove the spline coupling from the old rack and drop the rack/crossmember out...


No more rack/crossmember...


Old rack/crossmember (top) compared to 01 ITR rack/crossmember (bottom)


Civic input spline on old rack...


Integra input spline on new rack...


Obviously, you will need an Integra spline coupling to connect your steering linkage to the Integra rack...




My ITR rack lines were cut and beat up, so I replaced them with new ones...




Lines and rear mount bolted up and ready to install...


Get a friend, or use some jacks to help get the crossmember assembly into position to bolt up...


Mounted...


Rear mount connected...


Might as well add an ITR bar...




If you tried to install a stock P/S pump/pulley setup into an EG, you would have to cut a hole completely through your hood to get the pulley to fit. This is not the case on an EK or DC2, as there is enough hood clearance to just notch out the inner skeleton. After notching out my inner hood skeleton and realizing it wasn't going to happen, I started making plans to cut the hood. Luckily, a day before I planned on destroying the hood, I stumbled upon a pic of a Jackson Racing supercharger installed in an RSX. It was at that point when I realized something was up w/ the P/S pulley. It looked just slightly smaller in O.D., almost perfect for my application. So anyway, after ordering Jackson Racing P/N: 052-154 and checking it out, I was able to breathe a nice sigh of relief.

For a k20a2, you will want the belt shown below (52.2" long). I ran this belt initially on the k20a; but after some use, the belt has worn in and seated such that the tensioner is almost maxed out in its travel. For a k20a or k20z1 I would recommend going with the next shortest size which is a 52.0" long belt (to compensate for the smaller prc crank pulley).


Jackson Racing pulley installed. P/N: 052-154




For the fluid return, you could opt to go with a stock setup, but the cost of the parts just for a mediocre return did not seem to be worth it. I opted to get some 3/8" I.D. hose and utilize a $40 oil cooler from Perma-Cool Industries. P/N: 1007




It even mounted effortlessly in the vertical front bulkhead support.






RSX P/S reservoir mounted w/ return hoses hooked up...


Integra spline coupling connected..


For the high pressure hose, an 02-04 RSX Base or Type-S will work nicely. Whatever you do, do not get an 05+ high pressure hose! The fitting to go into the Integra/Civic P/S rack will not work as Honda increased the fitting size in 05 and up RSX's.


Bolt on the high pressure hose to the P/S pump.


Done...


Note: The one thing I didn't do, which can gain extra clearance, is to flip the plastic return connector on the pump upside-down. There is an existing hole in the pump that allows you to do this; but you need to tap it, such that you can thread in a screw to mount. This was an area where my hood would rub on, and over time I ended up cracking the carbon fiber hood because I did not address the issue quick enough. You may alternatively choose to do what k20a.org user kommon_sense has shared with us on Post #154.

I just installed my k24a4 in 96 hatch. Hasport Ekk2 mounts in lower holes with type s pump. the hood hits the top inlet bolt hole of the pump just slightly and with latch. I'm making a new inlet elbow and i'm going to shave down the top mounting hole to see if I can clear the hood with out cutting. belt is clearing so far. I should be done in a few days to post pics.


Haven't had much time to work on it. changed plan a little. I shaved the pump housing a little and slotted the lower mount hole in the pump to help move it away from the hood a little and i'm in the middle of inlet modding. this looks like it gives me enough clearance not to worry about hitting the hood during boost pulls.

does anyone have any ground clearance problems running k24s in an ek with ekk2 mounts that are mounted one hole lower? I deffinately want to be running power steering, but trying weigh the options of either not having sufficient grown clearance or having to trim the hood.
