Default Steering column

I am currently stripping my donor eunos roadster and selling the bits as I go.
Do I keep the steering column? Can it be mated to the mk2 escort rack?
Also it is power assisted which seems a bit of an over kill. So should I sell it and get a manual mx5 rack or sell and get a Sierra rack.
I'm using talons chassis kit if that makes any difference

Thanks Dean
