Some folks here tried Fiat Uno steering and are very happy with it. But you have to turn steering arms backwards..

Mark P knows a bit about this subject, standard rack is 3 1/4 or 3 1/2 turns, quick racks are 2 1/2 turns.
BLS did quaife racks many years ago, they no longer have any, Quaife will only do a run of 15, I can get 7 people so far @ 200 each. I spoke to the guy that makes the Minari kit cars and knows other people who are interested, along with himself.

I spoke to Zoe in june/july @ Titan Motorsport | Motorsport & Automotive Engineering. UK 01480 474402, they want 4 - 500 for a one off or they will modify one of there off the shelf ones for a lot lot less, i cant remember and don't want to mis-quote, you have to provide measurements and they find the closest match and modify to fit.
