Post Product Review: Turn One power Steering pump (F-Body)
I ponied up for one of these to replace the stocker on the Firehawk. It was $270.00 so not comically overprice compared to a "New" unit, but expensive nonetheless. I opted for the $80.00 Billet pulley as well bringing the total to $350.00. Obviously installation and function are pretty straight forward, but the appeal to me of the added cost was the advertised difference in steering feel, although it is supposed to also cool much better than the stock unit, but I will probably never be able to prove that. There is a noticeable heft and smoothness in the steering now compared to the stock overboosted unit. Is it worth $350? It is to me, I like it and the fact I will no longer have to deal with removing the damn stock pulley (the engineers were kind enough to put the P/S cooler right where the tool goes on) and I really like the way the steering feels. Now if I can just get a heftier wheel.....!onlin ... y=12405744

Makes sense to me.. less assist pressure means - you "feel" more through the wheel, and as a side benefit, since the pump isn't providing as much assist, it runs cooler.
