Default EG Subframe in EM1

Im doing a manual EG rack and Integra subframe in my EM1. I understand that the bolt holes will not line up with the bracket, but I know this conversion is common, what options have people used?
I have heard of using an power rack bushing, drilling the manual rack bracket, and even using a front swaybar bracket from a 90-93 accord.
What's out there?

If you're doing a manual rack install you need the correct subframe that will take a manual rack. Why make it harder.

I just bought an NRG subframe and gave my eg manual subframe away to my buddy who threw it in the corner of his shop, they aren't all that hard to get from junkyards.

Iíve been searching for the better part of a year now. Havenít found one. The power subframes are plentiful though. Iíve been to two different yards as well recently. All of the EGs around here have essentially rusted to dust, and the ones that havenít arenít willing to part out the subframe.

It would cost more in shipping than it's worth, plus I would have to take my time to go and get it, package it LOL. Now if OP lives in Phoenix maybe we can figure something out.

I will ask my buddy, he had it at his shop and I will see if he still has it laying around. I gave it to him probably about 6 months ago, so we will see.

I mean if you were here I would give it to you for free.
