Yup, the 1.5 inch ram will turn faster. Technically, it will also have less power, but it should still have more than enough. There are three modifications you can do to your pump to increase the pressure and speed. I only did one of them and am amazed at the difference. I think the two inch ram will end up being fast enough. Probably the only time I can turn the wheel faster than the ram will turn is at idle speed, it should be just as fast as me when I'm on the gas.

like Braden said, it will turn faster...most guys use a 1.5"x 8" ram for thier steering systems...what do they charge for just the ram??? maybe I should give them a call on monday...:p

Me too. I plan on running the Ram that RockLogic has, so I just plan on asking them when I call. :cool:

OK - you've been helpful with the porting stuff, do tell on the pump mods!

Looks great Braden.
