HELP with power steering

Hey guys,

I have an EM2 and I have an EM2 with a k20a swap.

The power steering was completed 3 days ago. Just last night on my way home, my steernig wheel got REALLLYYYY stiff!!!! I had to use all my strength to make turns. I got home and noticed that my power steering area is making noises. My steering fluid is full so its not a leak.

What could it be? How do I fix it? I can't even drive the car to a mechanic because the steering wheel won't turn!

I took a short clip so you guys can see whats going on under the hood... any help would be much appreciated.

The noise is when the steering wheel is turned.

from the sound of that clip, your p/s pump is gone. Its pumping air. It will be easier for you to steer the vehicle while its moving. If you are steering at a stationary point, you need big muscle to do it.
