      Makes sense. Now I just need to decide between Drive Junky and Wegner. Between those two, which do you guys feel has the better PS pump? If I can put off buying the Turn One pump for a little bit, that would be helpful. The following are Speedtech's requirements for steering pump:

      ExtReme Power Steering System Requirements

      The Sweet dual power steering rack is a very high quality part. Considering the way Speedtech has spec’d its internals for maximum all round performance and through extensive testing and racing our Sweet equipped test cars we have come up with the following critical requirements to ensure proper function, reliability, and longevity of your power steering system.

      The use of a very high quality power steering pump is required
      • We recommend either Jones Racing or Sweet Manufacturing.
      Both of these pumps are hand built and have extensive internal modifications to increase both performance and longevity over any other pump that we are aware of.
      • Do not use a factory style or spec'ed steering pump.

      MAXIMIM RPM of the steering pump is 5200 RPM
      Please ensure your pullies are sized for this max speed accordingly with max engine RPM. Although individual needs may vary, we generally recommend:
      • 5” crank Pulley
      • 6.5” power steering pulley

      Required Power Steering Pump Specifications
      • 3+ Gallons per minute
      • 1300 psi

      We recommend a series 60 eccentric in the power steering pump.

      You MUST use a quality power steering cooler
      • Minimum of at least 44 sq inches.

      You MUST use a high quality fluid, we recommend
      • Jones full synthetic, or
      • Sweet full synthetic
      Also, which is more easily serviceable with common parts in case something fails in the field?

      Edit: I'm heavily leaning towards the DJ kit. All of the Speedtech cars are using them and it looks like it's everything I need and more.

      Purchased the Wegner WAK033 yesterday. Solid black everything with the 225 amp alt. The PSC power steering pump is spec'ed at 3.1 gal/min and 1500 psi compared to 1100 psi of the Jones unit on the Drive Junky. I'm sure both are fine, but not a lot of the Speedtech cars were using the Wegner and I like the idea of trying something different to see how it works.

      Thanks everyone for your help.

      I might mention mine is a Speedtech equipment car. Not the xtreme but the original pro touring sub up front and torque arm rear.

      Has anyone used an accessory drive from CVF? Considering the LS mid mount for a late second gen firebird.
