Default Power steering pump pressures

Looking to put a T6 in my 164, and also retain the power steering. I've seen that the whiteblock 240 swaps will work with the stock 240 ps rack.

How different are the pressures between a 240 ps rack and a 140/160 ps rack? Close enough to run the T6 ps pump? Does it really matter? Looking at you RWC.

The 164 power steering box (not a rack) is driven by 85bar/1230psi
I prefer less.
If I remember right the whiteblock psp is with 100bar/1450psi, the car feels soft, too soft.

regards, Kay

the 850/960 saginaw TC pump uses the same pressure control valve as the 91-93 240 saginaw TC pump. Max output of 1200psi. I just went through this exercise. I think the later ZF pump off the RN engines is higher like mocambique mentioned.
