    Borgson box upgrade experience?

    I was originally planning on adding ram assist to my 2nd gen 2500 when I do the axle swap. I intend on running hydroboost so there's a bit of a concern about the hydroboost flowing enough. The borgson box option would probably cost more but have a lot fewer moving parts. Anyone on here done it and have great things to say about it?

    Pass. Its a quicker ratio box, but I didnt like it. Its also the samr size as the stock box. The sector shaft deflected when turning the wheels (cummins, stock size wheels, 1997 dually).

    I ended up selling it, and getting the XD box thats for 2012 trucks, from PSC performance. It is a much larger box. Much much bigger sector shaft. That was a legit box. Save your money and drop the 695 on that.

    Edit: yes the new boxes are a different bolt pattern, I had one for an actual 2012 model, holes are a little off. What PSC does, I think, is get untapped cores, and drills taps them for 2nd gen pattern, and includes frame spacers. Legit box, properly done. I got the version that fits a bigger pitman. They also have one thats cut down to fit the 2nd gen pitman.

      you could send your hydrobooster unit to Vanco to have it 'hi-flowed' which flows more fluid to 'feed' a ram without slowing down the steering too much - have one going into my ram-assisted 02 Dakota. Also consider having PSC rebuild/'hi-flow' your gearbox too for the same basic results. It all add up to awesome brakes and steering

        I am running one on my 96 2500 cummins truck along with their pump (40k miles on parts in question). Its superior to the factory box by a long shot but still doesn't perform like steering in a newer rig. If your going to replace it plan on do a steering shaft as well. Everything taken into account, I would buy one again, the quality of construction far exceeds most rebuilt units.
