type-s front strut tower bar

i was thinking about getting a type-s front strut tower bar. they are saying that there should be two studs that they bolt too. when i checked my car i don't have the studs but i do have the holes. is there any thing i can do?

if it just mounts on to the studs would you be able to in a way make ur own studs to mount it to? or do you think it would be a option to by pass studs and go straight into mounting holes? Not sure if i helping much. just trying to give ideas and possible bring forth a 100% sure answer.

The Type S strut brace only bolts straight up to ATTS front end cars. (Yes, they are different!)

You can buy an adaptor apparantly, but I've never seen them available.

You said you have the holes are they threaded?

If not find a bolt that fits that hole, now find a nut that fits that bolt. Take the nut and tack weld that underneath the strut tower centered on that hole once you test fitment and your satisfied with the placement of the nuts that you tack welded go ahead and lay down some nice welds to secure it better then bolt on your strut bar.
