I'm looking at getting a manual R&P setup but I have no idea what the driveability is like and the car is for my wife. Could any of you that have that set up offer some feedback. I would like to think it's a far cry from the early manual sterring setups of the 60's and more along the lines of a newer mustang. We had a 2000 with the 4.6 and the steering was nowhere near the ease of the old power steering units but very responsive and not a struggle at all. Is the manual rack along those lines? It's a 65 vert with the 289.
