I don't think the XF box is a straight bolt it. I am pretty the XW is the oldest car that it will bolt straight into.

RRS do a great rack and pinion for all falcons/mustangs but $2200 is a bit hard to sacrifice these days. I intend to get one for the XB eventually.

have been told that the only difference between the boxes is the mounting bolt spacing. one easy fix is to swap the internals between the two different types.

Yes it is possible, no I haven't done it but it has been done many times.

That Parker dude with the massive flared red XY did it, apparently you will need to make an indentation for the steering box as well, not just the new bolt holes etc.

XA-XF basically use the same pwr steer box, they don't just bolt into any models before this.
