If you are running the stock power steering reservoir cap they are prone to leaking on hard cornering. They have a different cap that looks like a raised filler neck and helps eliminate this.

No the one I'm talking about is the same yellow color that our reservoirs are from the factory. It almost looks like an upside down funnel with a small cap on top.

What I've seen on the track cars is this setup:

Just a OE neck that is elongated by joining it to a cut off neck with a soft hose/clamps. Also, supposedly using a V6 p/s pulley helps the pump not to cavitate and bubble the fluid. The cap is not the issue, it's the continued high RPM and heat. Causes the fluid to bubble then puke out the top. Supposedly using a performance fluid with higher boiling point is possible as well.

Finally found a pic. [MENTION=15115]hotmustang95[/MENTION] has the setup I was talking about. This is what I've seen on other cars around the track and has helped a lot of people.
