    power steering

    ok, I want to replace that pipe for power steering fluid cooling with an actual cooler. question is, what is the pressure in that pipe? can I run a rubber hose to the cooler and back? or ss lines? I'd like to mount it on the passenger side, in front of the radiator. my oil cooler is on the driver side.

    thanks!

    Curious as to why you would want to cool the PS fluid ?

    I hear that pipe gets really hot at the track (road course). Heat kills iirc

    Don't do it. My memory of it is somewhat vague, but I considered something like this and found that the power steering system sees very high pressures (over 1000psi). I think the metal cooling pipe is on the high-side of the system. You can tap into the return line to the reservoir and run a cooler there if you think this is an issue. That line does not see high pressures like that. I think anywhere after the rack is safe.

    Edit- disregard this- cooling pipe not on high side. There must have been some other reason I didn't pipe in the power steering.

    Pretty sure the cooling line is on the low side, considering the lines to it aren't even hose clamped.

    Yes cooling is done on the low side. The metal pipe comes up the inside frame and then there are two small pieces of rubber hose connecting it the the reservoir. I removed my hard line and replaced it with an 8 row trans cooler and just used standard heater hose to connect it back to the reservoir.

    ok thanks. I didn't think it was high pressure but wasn't sure about that.
