What Do You Get?
Borgeson's power steering conversions seek to make things as factory looking and feeling as possible, so a new rag joint is used on the original column to connect to the modern steering box and a new splined shaft is included, when necessary. Manual steering conversions will get a mounting bracket and power steering pump with hoses; original power steering cars will only need the hoses. Remanufactured boxes are chemically cleaned, inspected, and refinished, and all components are adjusted to exceed factory specifications.

What options are available?
Chrome ididit columns are available for some cars for manual boxes or power steering conversions.

Why should I buy it?
Borgeson says the use of a modern fast-ratio power steering gear as a starting point brings the benefit of variable assist and true, modern power steering feel and response that cars originally equipped with slave-cylinder systems lack. In addition, Borgeson power steering conversion boxes maintain the original ground clearance, simplified steering linkage, and a close-to-stock appearance underhood.

Are any modifications required?
Remanufactured manual boxes are stock parts, so they are all bolt-ins. Some power steering conversion kits require a replacement column shaft, or collapsing the factory column 1 to 2 inches for clearance. Mustangs originally equipped with power steering will require either a drag link adapter, or a manual steering centerlink; early cars will need to have the steering shaft replaced.

Detroit Speed & Engineering (DSE)
704-662-3272; www.detroitspeed.com

What models are covered?
'67-92 Camaro,
'67-92 Firebird,
'68-74 Nova,
'64-72 GM A-body

What do you get?
A brand-new steering box (not a rebuilt stocker) with completely revised internals using a low-friction gear design.

What options are available?
Bare steel finish or ceramic coating

Why should I buy it?
DSE designed their box to nearly match rack-and-pinion steering performance with a bolt-in 12.7:1 ratio steering gear. This box can be used to replace the common Saginaw 800-series power steering boxes used on most GM cars from '64 to '92.

Are any modifications required?
Despite being a clean-slate design, the DSE 600 steering gear is a direct bolt-on. A new 3/4 x 30-spline rag joint is needed with the box, however.

How do I buy it?
You can buy it direct from Detroit Speed, or one of their authorized dealers.

How much does it cost?
Bare is $495, ceramic coated is $575
