because i have the T2V on my SE, thats the only option it has
but it still feels like a SE ratio.
T2V has nothing to do with the rack. T2V boosts the line pressure from the pump below a pre-set speed identified by the VSS, and is independent of the rack.
I have the 'SSEi (don't call this FE2) rack in the SSEi with T2V. Response is GREAT on the freeway. Road feel and feedback is vastly better than the non-SSEi rack. I don't even have to steer on the freeway or high speeds.
I have the 'SE' rack on the SLE, but I also have T2V. As you can see, the two options are not crosslinked. The SE rack is a quicker rate or more sensitive if you prefer. In comparison, I feel on long trips that I'm constantly applying steering input to keep the car on the road. If it were my only car, I'd get used to it and never notice. It'* like 90% of the vehicles out there. But I prefer the other rack, and will make the change at some point. Maybe this winter.
The point is that T2V is an independent option and has no relation to the steering rack whatsoever. It only reduces steering effort or input in slow-speed maneuvering.
