Default Hydroboost question

Anyone ever do a hydroboost swap with a unit from a Ford F250? Concerned about operating pressure differences for the hydroboost and the rack and pinion.

Steering rack from a 2005 Crown Victoria PI and hydroboost from a 2008 SuperDuty.

Any help would be appreciated.

What power steering pump will you be using? I'd be more concerned about it being able to hold the pressure it needs.


89 F-150 5.0l AOD 2x4, 3.55 LS(+4), Converted to HO Roller, 3g Alt, GT40Ps, Y-pipe, Rerouted PCV, Dual Taurus E-fans, Explorer Injectors, Remote ICM, DIY Cold air, Rubber Vacuum System, Tranny cooler, Remote Tranny filter, Saginaw P\S swap, F350 Brakes, more.

It's a stock 2005 Police Interceptor model. Police specs say it is a heavy duty unit but doesn't give me operating pressures. Local auto parts stores don't know either.

I may have to go to my local Ford dealer for the info.

I wasn't able to find a thing for the operating pressure, just removal and install of a Rack and Pinion, I even tried a CV axle forum, didn't find anything..

You might try calling a ford dealership, or FoMoCo directly and see what they say.

Thanks for your efforts.

The Ford dealer found the pump pressure ratings for the 4.6L and the 6.0L were very similar. In fact, in 2006 Ford started using the same pump for both motors. Hopefully, my worries are over.

I think if they're real close to each other they should be fine.

Not sure how much different the 250 hydro boost is but the cobra mustangs ran the hydro boost with their rack. I have crown vic in my 69 not sure if I'm going to go hydro boost or vacuum. I thought about running a hydro boost out of an astro van as they sell a mount on the bronco sites. I also know on some of the coyote swaps they use both the 06 gt pumps and the older 2v power steering pumps with the mustang hydro boost. Don't know if that helped at all.
maybe this will help

Thanks for your info. I found out that in 2006 the F250 and the F150 power steering pumps are the same part number for hydroboost and without hydroboost. It will also bolt up to the Mod 4.6L I'm installing.
