Does anybody know what the steering pump's output flow and pressure are?

There are some differences on different applications such as year and pass car or truck, but the one that was on my 2004 truck 5.7 was rated at around 1300 PSI if I remember correct. I have no idea what the flow is on these pumps. The reason I researched it was because there was some talk of the late model pumps putting out too much pressure for the earlier muscle car steering boxes which were used with pumps that put out about 900 PSI. I went ahead and hooked the late model pump up to the steering box in my 70 Cuda and have never had a problem. Hope this helps some.
