Mustang II pressure regulator

I'm wondering if anyone has installed the Heidt's adjustable power steering regulator valve on their cars which have a Mustang II power rack and a stock SBC power steering pump? How hard is it to install? and did it make a big difference?

I currently have a stock Mustang II power rack and a SBC stock power steering pump. It steers like it is on ice all the time, especially at speeds in town. Several years ago I purchased a pressure reduction valve from R&B's and installed it in the Chevy pump. It helped a little, but the Heidt's unit sounds like what I need since it is adjustable, and it compensates for pulley speeds and pressures as engine rpms increase.

Appreciate any comments on the Heidt's unit if you have used it.

I dont have any first hand knowledge about the piece you mentioned. However, most people are using the late T-Bird Power steering racks to get away from the touching Mustang 2 unit.
