I am trying to decide which way to go with a current project 1967 GTA Fastback. I have been reading up on the Borgeson power steering box and like the simplicity. Does anyone have experience with Borgeson vs rack and pinion set up? I would be interested in a hands on comparison between the two. Shawn

If the borgeson box is same type/as 71-73 cars  It wont fit.

 the other issue is the lines  clearing the exhaust / they wont without major modification.

rack and pinion is a lot of work to do right.

stock parts will work well if rebuilt correctly.

.  I am told by Unisteer the GPM must be 3-5 and the PSI 1400 to operate their rack unit. They could not provide me with Ford specifications. I realize pulley diameter can alter these numbers as well. Does anyone know the specs of a 1967 pump?  Any advice on the multiple products available at this time would also be appreciated?  BTW what is "Lucas"? The oil?  Since I will have tri-Y I did not want the issues of header with oem power steering issues.  I dont wnat to drop the ram and need the running clearance
