Steering increas on an FD

I have seen a number of people increase the steering angle on their FDs but never actually seen what gets done. What gets changed? And why?

does this help to speed up the rack aswell? or do more mods need to be done?

not sure on speeding up the rack, but will give you more angle at full lock

Spacers in rack gives you a small amount more
Modified hubs is the next step
After that you need to look at custom wishbones and modified steering rack.
