I can tell what is not documented. Manual tranny rebuild (either 5 spd or 6 spd).
Yes replacing the power steering lines are very easy. I am speaking about a DIY on how to fabricate/ retrofit those same lines with professionally adapted high pressure steel braided lines. I suspect this would help preserve the PS lines a lot longer, match the oil filter lines, and help correct the reservoir leak along with installing new cap o-ring. At least one of those lines is a HIGH pressure and susceptible to failure and I'm sure we will all receive better steering control as a result.

I talked to these folks in Fremont, CA and I will be working with them to ACTUALLY see if it can be done.
