SO - I have a 1st gen and was wondering if anyone has a Link to a Nice how to Guide and Possible recommendation on a Rack & Pinion conversion kit for a 1st gen with a BB in it? Thanks In advance
Its sucks that Bad?The only recommendation is DON’T DO IT.
Nothing but problem.
CPP was a marginal choice at best imho. Check out Turn One For a 600 series box.Its sucks that Bad?
I went with a CPP 400 series Conversion kit (after rebuilding the original box did not work out).
I have bin tweaking with the slack adjuster on the CPP box but I can never seem to get it right...
Its new - all components up front are new and It just feels sloppy and loose.
I can tighten it up a but more but when I do it feels like its skating and wants to track to one side or the other.
I Thought a rack might be better but I am not looking for more problems!
Yes but you don’t need the ceramic plating. 12:1 ratio. Give them a call, they are very helpful.
The Turn One is pricey but it is a great box ! make sure your pump is in good shape.Just as a final fallow up. I ordered my Turn One box yesterday. Also had to get a new adapter rag joint to go with it. I hope its an Improvement. =) Thanks again for all the Help guys
I am hopeful , I procrastinated buying it because of the price! My pump has not bin an issue and has bin modified to put out higher pressure with the borgeson kit. If it gives me any Issues at all I will just replace it!The Turn One is pricey but it is a great box ! make sure your pump is in good shape.
I had the "IROC" box, it was fine for normal driving, I even autocrossed a few times with it, but it was nowhere near as tight as the Turn One box I replaced it with, although I did want a little faster box, so I went with a 10.1 gear. Bonus, its a little lighter and smaller too.
My old IROC box lives in a 64 GTO now.
It was set up for a BB when I got it - Everything I have checked to date has bin fine. Had the car for 12 years. The headers have bin giving me headaches on that Drivers side! They are VERY lage tube headersDo you have the correct motor stands and cross member for a BB?
