You can do it. I did it on my 1996 Saturn, but I did it while I was changing the engine. The new engine came with a Power Steering pump, so I also purchased a new power steering rack as well, and while I had the engine out I removed the old manual steering rack and put in the new one, connected the hoses, and voila, I had power steering. I'm not sure all cars are this easy, but my Saturn was. .
