These are directions on how to install the Garagistic power steering delete block for your BMW e30, e36, or z3. This is one of the most commonly upgraded parts on E30's and for good reason; the steering response benefits are well worth the trade of eliminating power steering. The numbing effect of power steering can be of great detriment on the track or autocrossing. The comfort trade-off is a choice many E30, E36, and Z3 owners make when making the switch to PSD.

-Some people drain the rack completely and add a tiny bit of fresh power steering fluid to lubricate the rack.
-You can remove the power steering pump, belt, bracket, hoses, and reservoir to drop some weight off the front of your e30.
-Running no power steering does increase the difficulty in turning the car under 5 miles per hour and parallel parking; in all other situations its really not that bad.
