Steering Sector 2.5 turns lock to lock!!!
#1
Hello Again Everyone!!!
 
This post is just information because I found something I didn't think they made and I'm pretty damn excited about it!!!
 
The stock power steering box of a 72 Mustang has a 16:1 gear ratio which turns out to be 3.75 turns lock to lock on the steering wheel.  The one listed below equates to a 10.7:1 ratio and 2.5 turns lock to lock.  PLUS it cheaper than every other upgrade box I looked at!!!
 
THE BEST PART... it is a complete bolt up replacement for your stock box.  You don’t have to mess with the replacing the end of the steering column which I read you have to do with most upgraded steering boxes.
 
I bought it, I installed it and on the Jun 16th I'm going to race with it.  I’m not sure if you can tell, but I’m excited about it.
 
The benefit for me is that on the circle track, a typical turn requires almost a half a turn of the steering wheel.  Now I'm only going to need a quarter (if my math is right)

So anyone racing or just wanting hugely more responsive steering, this might be the part.  Also, I googled discount codes for this site and found a $25 off coupon during the month of May which brought the price down to $269.10.  Shipping was free.  There was a $200 core charge but they paid from shipping.

Wow, that's an excellent post!  If I would have saw that first I probably would have tried it.

Yes, there are some talented and innovative folks on this forum. Someone has addressed just about everything you can think of, engines, transmissions, interiors, sound systems, exteriors, electric remote mirrors, body modifications, wheel and tire fitment, and many others.
