Never tried a plugged power rack, but manual is the way to go for "drivers". I liken the power steering to automatic shifting. It's just another barrier between you and the car. IMHO!
Yes - I have learned to get things centered properly. This will be done correctly.

I understand the last comment fully. This is for a car that will be used for RallyCross. I am looking to simplify things and take out weight - and also cost very little to build. Since I have 2+ parts cars to work with and they are all later cars (w/ P/S), I am stuck with those racks. Not having to deal with the leaks, the belt and all the other crap, is going to be a good thing.

I drove enough events without the belt to know it doesn't make much difference to not have the assist. Maybe a plug with a built-in zerk fitting?
