Default power steering gear box upgrade thoughts

ZQ8 boxes are nice but when the wheels are in a bind buried in clay they are worse than the original boxes.

I want the aggressiveness of the zq8 box with more power. Any suggestions?

This is for a daily driver.

Leaking input shaft seal motivates this upgrade. I hear good things about AGR boxes, not sure if they require better pumps to work or if we can run the stock pump for a while until we go hydroboost.

Also looking into the steering damper upgrade which somewhat goes against my goals however I feel like bump steer on the freeways potholes more than makes up for this challenge.
