Lightbulb E30, E36 and Z3 powersteering delete blocks

Came out with a power steering delete block. No ghetto hose loops or complete block offs like other routes already on the market.

http://store.garagistic.com/ocart/power_steering_delete

The details:

Many track e30, e36 and z3 run with no powersteering to get a better "feel" for what the car is doing. However, many people are needing to ghetto rig a hose on the factory banjo fittings or worse yet, they are using plug systems that do no allow for fluid/air to get from one side of the rack to the other. This often results in blown seals and a higher rate of steering effort.
Our steering aluminum block are made of high quality aluminum and feature a side pathway that connects the two banjo fitting holes to make sure that fluid/air can easily pass between them.

They can be purchased from here:

About how much does it affect steering effort at low speeds if full power steering is 10 and just cutting the power steering belt is 0?

It will be like 1-2. Increased effort at parking lot speeds but not unbearable. Pros are: weight savings, high speed stability, one less item to fail (or leak) track side, and increased road "feel".

Best way to know if your going to like it is to disconnect the power steering belt and give it a shot.
