acura mdx: the power steering pump and the rack and pinion

This answer was rated:

the power steering pump and the rack and pinion was just replaced on my 2004 acura mdx but it's hard to park and make a u turn ( steering is hard ) what is the problem?
Hi .

Was the power steering rack and the pump new or used .

When you are trying to turn the steering wheel stationary and you rev up the engine does it get easier to turn, or is is hard to turn whatever the engine revs are.
