How do I convert to electric powered hydro pump on the steering??

My 2005 Civic has hydraulic power steering assist, and I would like to convert to electric. I am thinking that I might just find some way to rig an electric motor to spin the pump. Do you have any ideas on how to do this? Thanks.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one
