Re: steering gear box Q's
Mike, the Gen III swap is mainly to correct the ultra light steering touch that a first gen box has. There's an item called a torsion bar in the box that sets the steering effort....first gen and many other cars are set up for very light effort, third gen and other cars have heavier effort. You can get a 12.7:1 ratio (about 2.5 turns lock to lock) in either. To get the heaviest effort, you must request a third gen WITH FE2 suspension like Jim stated. A standard third gen uses a box with an effort not a whole lot more than a first gen.
I have had two 12.7:1 first gen boxes in mine before going to the IROC WITH FE2 box and there is a big difference in steering feel but the turns ratio is the same.
