K Swap Power Steering Help!

I have a tech question that I am hoping someone can help me out with. I have a 92 Prelude Si that I am in the process of putting a K20/K24 in. The engine needs some tuning but runs fine. The issue I am having is with the power steering. With the engine running, everytime I turn the wheel alil to the left or right it turns completely to that side. I have put in a new (refurbished) rack and it still does the same thing. I even switched the lines running into the rack to see if it would change the out come with no luck. The next step I can think of is maybe switching out the power steering pump. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd ask on honda-tech, more people have done the swap.. pretty rare swap for a prelude.

why not just loop the lines? and go without PS

Re: K Swap Power Steering Help!

There are a few things in life you can live without in a car. I can live without A/C, but I refuse to live without power steering. I want to make the car fun to drive. Not having PS and driving in town with slow traffic and tight parking spots will make it less fun. Thanks for the info. I will hit them up for some info.

Re: K Swap Power Steering Help!

Just thought about it, the lines shouldn't make it turn farther.. You have quickly turn ratios or something?

Thanks for the info TypeT. I have to pass this on to my friend in TX that is finishing my Lude up for me. I hate not being able to be there to do it myself, but work calls.
