I forgot to mention that another benefit to doing the delete this way is that a breather can be easily added where the two hoses connect if desired. I have only driven about 40 miles since the mod but it appears to have given a decent increase in MPG. I notice that the steering is easier with the system looped and some of the fluid removed from the rack than it was just EOC'ing with everything in place. I will try to quantify the belly pan and power steering delete once I run through a couple tanks.
