Re: Removing Booster and Installing New AN Style Lines

So I've been researching and researching and I'm trying to redo my power steering hoses to eliminate the hydroboost. It's a race car so its not needed. Can I run an AN Style Line from the pump output directly to the box? I've been reading something about a restricter? Thanks Andy not the high press...
