You can still use those flaming river racks if you have a mod motor.

How did you like the rack? I'm about to order one. Relatively simple install?

really late response but the rack is nice, like the other people have said, it takes a little effort to get it turned while the car is stopped ( im on 3 inch rims, probably harder on stockers) but while moving its no different than power steering. my biggest bonus was I could remove a few pullies, tank, etc.

I was thinking the same thing hahaha! Good work OP!

Flaming river makes the best manual racks, IMO. Everything I've seen and used from them has been flawless. I'm currently considering switch my '95 GT to a manual rack. Which is why this thread struck my interest to begin with.

if your only running the wheels in your sig then you would be fine. I use the standard ratio rack and theres really not much effort that has to be put into it with the skinnies.
