    Do any of you have this in a 1966 Dart, if so did you have any problems? Thanks

    Hello, I just installed one of the kits in a buddies 71’ Dart. I will tell you it makes a world of difference in area for headers, and power steering. It was a little pricey, put the results were well worth it. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for reply, I just got done changing the Bergman coupler for the Borgeson neither one would clear the long tube TTI headers in my 360 66 Dart. I had the headers pulled and reworked back 2016 when I installed the steering box and the Bergman. How much steering shaft length did you have? Mine was only 3 and7/16 inches.

    Hey coalman, that is about what we had, after we drilled the holes for the sleeve there wasn’t much showing with the sleeve installed. Nice ride by the way

    I have the 'hi po' manifolds on my 66 with the 360. Mine is still manual steering, hoping the Borgeson will fit ok without any shaft impacts on the exhaust. If anybody knows, I would appreciate the input.

    Check with the header manufacture first, both the Bergman and Borgeson were larger than my factory power steering coupler....

    I have the Borgeson box with the Bergman coupler in my 66 Cuda with Dougs headers no issues at all. Engine is tied down.

    I would send you pictures, but my headers block everything. Try Borgeson's site and instructions for 800126, that might help....

    OK, grabbed a few screen shots for the audience.....Im assuming it has some advantages over the stock box or firm feel?
