Another issue:

Power steering won't wire up to the kseriesparts harness, and when I've attempted to take the steering rack motor off, it's sealed on a bearing and won't move.

I'm going to make the rack manual and swap in a manual rack and adapt it to the u-joint towards the firewall

The rack in the car is already a manual rack. The power steering motor can just be removed from the equation.

It's been posted by people have raced/driven without the P/S that the manual rack is not setup to be driven manually and is too difficult to steer with.

Yeah the effort required would be a definite workout. It may be able to be used with a gear device like a quick steer coupler reversed to make more turns lock to lock. It would lighten effort needed at the wheel. Just a thought.

Yeah I ran with the fuse out once just to see how it was and it is incredibly difficult to drive. I driven plenty of PS cars with belts removed and they are fine once rolling but not the Twins. The ratio is way to high to go without PS.

The motor is really easy to remove. My EPS coupler DIY explains how to remove the column which lets you drop/rotate the motor down so you can access the two bolts that hold it on.

It will be impossible to drive without EPS though.
