I am in the begining stages of installing a ls1 t5 combo into my new rdster. I have made a full frame am using a custom crossmember with mustang11 parts. What i would like to know is how steering effort it is to park and drive.I am currently using a stock mg rack. I used to have a red 2.3 ford turbo powered b. however the combo of cool temps and high boost sent the car into a light pole.Needless to say it was a wild ride and destroyed the car.

What i meant to ask was. When running a v8 with a stock mg rack how hard is it to park and drive? I have looked at custom racks but they are very costly to make.
