Thane,

I don’t know if the steering is doable with a box, as this car came to us with a rack installed. We upgraded the rack to a better unit, but never even tried a steering box.

We upgraded to a Tremec because the customer did not like the Richmond in the car.

As for the steering pump, you’ll have to do some research to see if anyone is making a bracket to allow that on the Coyote engine. All of the work we’ve done with them required both steering and AC, so I’m not familiar off hand of the ability to swap.

I presume the LS swap would be easier, as the engine is far narrower than the OHC Coyote mod-style engine.
