did you sell the 3" pulley with your kit?? I'm stil lwaiting for JR to get me one, but htey are dragging their feet. With this new belt problem, I may never see it. I'm on the 3.4" pulley with the original belt and no issues, so I would like to get a hold of the 3" pulley.

both pulleys together will give you 9 PSI(roughly). They are both good for a 2 PSI increase. I was running lean on 440cc injectors that's why I'm just using the 3.4" right now. I want a 3" pulley though to go with my 650cc injectors I have on order.

you gain roughly 1 PSI for every .2" lost. Most were making 4 PSI with the 4" pulley(supposed to make 5PSI however) do the math .5"=2.5 PSI, so the K24 pulley alone should be 6.5 PSI, add the 3.4"(3PSI)and you have 9.5PSI.

Is the bracket on top(the tubular one) new as well. Mine is rusted like a son of a gun. Also, my tensioner has rust on it, so mine must be steel. Guess I'm lucky I got the first kit. I'm still on my original belt running 9 psi and 20,000 miles.

I've driven car without power steering before and they aren't that bad, something else is needed to be done about the power steering system but I don't know what. I guess i'll wait until I can get my hand on an EP3 p/s pump
You need the whole steering rack and some Major modifications. WE looked into it already, there is a thread with parts and everything listed to lazy to search right now.
