Upgrade to Rack & Pinion

I need to change the steering cable on our '96 Response, which has the stock rotary steering. I've read a couple people comment about upgrading to rack and pinion, but there's not too much info out there. Would I be able to do so without doing too much work (basically, will the rack fit under the helm ok?)? And would there be a noticeable difference in steering? If it really won't make much difference, it's obviously cheaper and easier to simply swap out the steering cable on the present rotary system.

If I were to do that, would there be any reason I'd need extra length for the cable due to the orientation of the helm? I'm just thinking of the possibility that the cable would attach in a different place and then the 14' would be too short.

Did you ever upgrade the steering? I have a 1996 Response that needs a cable also and would rather have the rack and pinion but would need to have more info just as you requested.
