yes it can be done by removing the turbo bits. you'll also need a non-turbo header and intake parts and the vacuum lines will be different. year may matter as well...what year is the car, what year is the motor and are you swapping intake manifolds or not? basically....need more information on what exactly you're doing. there are issues, but nothing that can't be overcome.
the non-turbo intake parts are particularly tricky to find. i posted and posted and called and searched and still don't know if i have everything for it. but certainly you can make something up as you go along if you don't mind it being non-stock.
automatic, manual...trans details? i know the flywheels are different either between the turbo's and non-turbo's or AWD and FWD so that could be an issues depending what you have.
i did it but haven't gotten the car running yet due to other issues. i'm fairly certainly it had ECU issues, but some may be conversion related as well...haven't looked into it recently.

Why not turbo it, but reduce the boost to maybe 3-4psi?
Should handle it ok.

if you go with removing the turbo, shoot me a PM. i have a spider intake from a N/A MPFI XT. should be plug and play. then you will just need to have a custom peace fitted to go from the up pipe to the down pipe, to take place of the turbo. i could be wrong but i dont see why your turbo ECU would care if there was no turbo.
