B series engines - what do you reckon the P/S pump's parasitic draw is (BHP) ?

im just wondering what people thought about this?

id reckon as much as 10bhp, too generous a figure?

btw my power steering is the older pre-96 non-electric fluid system if that makes a difference

Do you know how to safely remove your PS without messing everything up? And no, you won't see a 10 hp gain.

i was going to swap in a manual rack, some company here in the UK will sell me a re-conditioned one.

what kind of bhp change would i see upon removing the power steering?

Crank hp maybe 8-9. Whp maybe 3-4. You really will not notice a difference. I think alot of people remove their ps so it cleans up there engine bay, not for the horsepower it frees up.

0-3bhp would be my guess mine is removed along with the a/c but I didnt have the choice in them anyway. I would keep what you have

3-4 is right, I have a JDM B18C without PS and it feels like I have more control of the car in corners, maybe not that intense but it has a better feel if that makes any sense to you. some people love it and some dont.
