Default Which Other Cars Have the Same Throttle Plate as an 05 RS

So I want a throttle plate to experiment with so that I don't ruin my only one. Turns out that Subaru doesn't sell the throttle plate, you have to buy the whole throttle body. That's a chunk of change for a flat piece of metal with two holes in it.

I'm hoping that I can get one from a junk yard. While I can obviously steal one from another 05 RS, that's a pretty small target to hit. What other years/models have the same throttle plate? Does it have to be a DBW throttle body, or did the older cable throttles use the same plate?

+1. While I don't have access to ebay at work, I'm guessing you could probably find a used throttle body on there for pretty cheap. I had to do that once or twice with my old Honda when the TPS went out, as you can't just get the sensor, you have to replace the whole throttle body.
