yes it can be done.

just find a 2.0 or 1.8 that dosnt have power streering and use their steering system.

I know there are a few guys on here that have done it before.

Are there any people on here that work at Buscher Racing? I know kevein did it to his 603whp Talan.

Removing power steering and ac helps free up some lost horsepower since those luxuries are a parasitic drag on the engine. Let me know how hard it was to replace your pulleys with the new ones. Also if it was worth it

A search would turn up some more information.

You don't need to replace the rack. I removed the pump and all the lines, then looped the in & out on the rack together. Leave a little fluid in it!

It's kinda' rough at <5mph, but after that it's fine. A manual rack will make it a little easier to turn.
