I was just wondering how many people on here have no power steering? I dont have access to non power steering car right now and was wondering if its that much harder to steer and if there is any noticable power increases?

power steering isnt too bad, but its a bitch when trying to park.
if your car is DD save yourself the hassle of gaining 2-3hp and keep your power steering.
practicality is the issue with a daily driven car, and ill take comfort over power any day.

I don't have power steering in my HF. It's probably not as bad in my car as it is in heavier vehicles, but any kind of parking lot driving is a whole upper-body workout. It's not horrible, and I really like the feedback it gives me while I'm driving, but if you don't want to have to crank down hard on the wheel every time you back into a parking spot, I'd stick with PS. The biggest reason anybody removes power steering is usually to make more room to fit a turbocharger, but power increases from just removing the power steering are negligible.

aslong as your rolling your fine. i perfer it cuz your able to feel the road alot more
It has its up and downs. Your able to feel every aspect of the road. Parkings a biatch.
Its not so bad if the car is rolling just a little bit. You'll be able to turn just like having power steering. Planning on putting back power steering.

Same here... I agree with everybody. I blew the pressure side of the P/S pump on my old Accord and got used to driving it like that. On my new Accord I removed the entire system. Currently awaiting warm weather to install a breather reservoir to make it somewhat easier to steer. Plus, it's nice to see an empty bay with no P/S or A/C junk there...
To each his own. Some people love it, some people hate it.
