    I just researched this for my 5.7 71 Charger build, the PS pump of choice seems to be the Chevy (or LS) type 2 pump. There are some videos online as well as a number of threads on various forums (to include this one) about this. There are companies that make adapters for them or you can make your own.

    Subscribed! I have been looking into this myself since I have a Borgeson Box that I'm using with my 6.4 Demon swap. I spoke to Peter Bergman (who I bought my box from) @BergmanAutoCraft and he recommended having a company called "Turn One" build a PS Pump. IIRC the output pressure needs to be around 1,200 PSI. Randy at Bouchillon sells a "reduced pressure" 3G PS pump that he claims is around 1,100 PSI but he also stated that "all of them are a little different", so I'm not feeling really confident in that response.

    Edit: I just looked at the Borgeson website for the small sector steering box that I have and here are their recommendations for pressure and flow:
    Maximum Pressure: 1450 PSI Maximum Operating Pressure, 1100-1250 Optimal
    Flow Rate: 2.0-2.5 GPM Flow Rate Recommended
