A friend of mine installed it in his 65 Ranchero; he scrounged all of the parts from the wrecking yard and had to do a fair bit of fabricating to get it in, but it worked well when completed. I see that there are now complete bolt-in kits available...I haven't seen one yet in a TriFive, and in general it hasn't sparked my interest, although I can see the attraction in eliminating the hydraulic fluid, lines and pump, which are are potential sources of leaks...and I hate leaks!
I have rack and pinion on my '49 Olds 98. and although steering is a breeze. I don't get a good road feel. I have a '62 'Vette I'm working on, and I am seriously considering installing electronic steering. It all goes under the dash and not visible in the engine bay. I have very soft tires and a 15 inch steering wheel, so steering is beginning to be a little tough for this OG. I would like to hear from actual users...It's about a $3K investment.
