So I'm going to be doing a full SRT swap into a 1GN coupe once i finish gathering all the final parts I need and I have a question that I'm hoping someone on here may be able to answer. Since I am going to be installing a full SRT dash into the car as well as the engine and full front to back harness, I have the opportunity to grab an SRT steering column with the skim key and skim mod as well as the 05 PCM. My question is "does anyone know if the SRT steering column will fit with the 1GN rack?" Since it's going to be an SRT dash, all the mounting points under the dash will work, my concern is where the column and rack mate up. Any input?

theres a guy on here that did the same type of swap you have in mind, most of it goes right in. a few things had to be "massaged" in but from the posts he did it didnt seam like such an impossible undertaking. good luck on it and let us know.

I'm reading that it will fit but that it'd need to be extended approximately 1.8" to mate with the steering rack. i've been told it will be simpler to remove everything from the srt column and install it all onto the spare 1gn column I have so that the column is long enough yet all the required parts are there for the srt wiring in the dash to plug into.
