after driving around for a few days with the P/S belt removed. i like it above 25, but parking lots are a bit of a pain. And im coming to realize that the auto crossing i do is relatively low speed do to smaller spaces used, under 50mph. so im thinking P/S delete may not be happening right now.

power steering delete and removing the belt are two different things. I don't know if you should or shouldn't do it, but I have no problems navigating parking lots 95% of the time.

With that said, anything above 5-10mph feels like normal. Do it, and never look back. or stay in the technological stone age

Don't they say natural feels better? haha

It's easier once you loop the lines and even take out the seal in the rack. I can't say it wouldn't be easier in a parking lot if I still had PS, but it's definitely not bad. Big risk if you're not sure though.

After you get all of the fluid out of the rack it turns much easier. And I went from 5.5* caster down to 4.5 degrees and it made a NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE. It is no big deal now.

Really debating hard on this as well. It's a lot of ---- that gets removed. So probably worth it. But it's my daily, never track it, not sure if there is a point besides space.
