This thread is to inform you on how to loop your power steering rack on an EG chassis (also works for DC integras). Removing the PS system should be simple enough, just drain the fluid out of the reservoir/lines and unbolt everything. A turkey baster works well for emptying the reservoir quickly and cleanly.

Once you get down to the rack there should be 2 fittings you need to loop. One is 14mm X 1.5 and the other is 16mm X 1.5. I used these adapters (I ordered from this site too and they came in a few days): [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Youll need part numbers FCM2240 and FCM2241. From there I used whats called socketless hose. Part number FCM1512 on this page ( [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ) fits on the adapters listed above. Part # FBN0600 is the hose I used to loop them, I bought 2 ft but you could probably get away with 1 ft. I didnt use a breather and I havent had any problems. I did drain a lot of the fluid out of the rack though, only leave a little in there to keep it lubricated. If you wanna use full SS braided off the adapter fittings you can do that and piece together your own lines. The hose im using has been working great though and its black so it stays out of sight. There will be a third hole in the rack that needs to be plugged. It should be a 14mm X 1.00, which is the same size as a flywheel bolt, which is what i used to plug it.
