IROC box is the way to go.

When you get a little time read this discussion on the IROC box upgrade. https://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=103139 The results a so good you don't need a rack and pinion.

Re: Power steering vs rack and pinion

any power steering box will take up more room than a manual box.
what engine/mount/trans/trans crossmember/header combo are you running? if you've got a big block sitting on small block mounts or a 350 sitting in 307 mounts with headers designed for the 350 mounts, you are gonna have some clearance issues..

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
