What do I have to do to keep my power steering? I know I am going to have to cut a little hole in the hood but what parts to I need to make it work?

what do I need off the K24, and what will I need to keep or modify off of my current setup. OEM 99 hatch with a blown Y7? (blown as in blown up not boosted :( )

Don't have the motor yet, should be here in about 2 weeks

i used the rsx power steering line with my stock civic fitting. it was kind of hard to get it situated to not hit the tie rods but it worked fine except for the fact my pump sucked, i think i had air in the lines. with my new motor im leaving power steering out. more power and after a few days of driving without you get used to it. now its wierd driving a car with poer steering.
