Electronic Steering Rack (manual feeling)?

I have a 8th Gen SI (circle track asphalt racecar). I have had a lot of issues I came across while building this car, mainly the stock chassis harness being hacked up and there was no saving it.
I have a RSX engine harness and a "race" chassis harness.
Now my issue is being the electronic steering. I'm not familiar with this as I've always had EG or EK civics. Is there a way I can have the steering feel as if it was a manual rack? or is there a way to keep the steering normal without any of the wiring? I did see something about removing the internals and could have the feel as a manual rack but I'm a bit confused and can't seem to find very much information on anyone doing this as I figured.

Hopefully someone may have done this and knows or at least has attempted it?

If you take the electronic motor out of the rack then take out the spline gear and bearing, it moves with ease, just as a manual rack would be. I plated were the electronic motor was so no debris get inside. Works as it should.
