If you don't happen to have your engine out when you do this Dansac's method of dropping the subframe is a very easy and simple alternative to removing the engine.

I never did get to drive it yet.. This weekend for sure.

Just the waterpump belt.
I measured it at being 29" on the smallest and 29.5" on the highest. Anyways I ordered a belt. 29.25" When you buy a belt their measurement is the outer diameter, mine would be the inner..
Long story short I'd go with a 29.5" outer. The 29.25" belt took some wrestling to get on.

Drove it today.
It will take some getting used to.. Less noticeable torque steer though.
Parking lots suck, and on ramps arent that fun either. but other than that its alright.

Best part is it gave room for the catch can. lol

on a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being - very hard --- 1 being - working power steering.)

so auto-crossing with this conversion would be out of the question?

Ya I wouldn't be auto crossing.. I am not a big guy... (150pds on a good day) I would rate parking lots a 8, and just crusing a 2 (its feels the same as the power pretty much)

EDIT When parking I can turn the wheel with one hand (abit of struggle) until it straight and it needs to turn the oppisite way... then its a two handed battle.
