You could de-power your present rack by cutting the lines from the PS pump and looping them on the rack. If you then remove the power steering pump you will have to either come up with an idler pulley in the same position or a different serpentine belt. This is all conjecture as I haven't done it or even looked at mine to see what is involved but this is a common practice for Spec Miata race cars.

Which brings up an interesting question: Do Spec Focus race cars use the power steering?
