Re: Big block power steering
I'm also using the factory close ratio box with a BB, but I'm running manifolds. Be advised that if your car doesn't have the right frame BB stands for the motor mounts, your engine will be centered in the engine bay. GM offset the factory BB engine in the Camaro and Nova toward the passenger side 3/4" to gain clearance around the steering box. That will help immensely in getting clearance for headers. The factory BB cars also required a different crossmember. Notice the hump in the fan shroud and the offset between the air cleaner and the rib on the cowl panel.
Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
