I have a 1988, 90HP Johnson.

Looking to replace controls and I am having trouble locating a unit that will fit up with out a 200-300 dollar adapter. Has anyone found a good aftermarket control for this unit with power tilt/trim and idle lever?

I don't have an answer about a replacement, but what's the issue with the existing controls?

The biggest issue is the throttle/shift lever itself is cracked in a few places as well as the release to take it out of neutral. The price of these replacement parts alone have me close to some aftermarket control boxes (without said wiring adapter). There is also play in the throttle itself which upon initial inspection, does not appear to be cable related.

Gotcha.  I replaced the handle/lever this year on mine because the trim/tilt switch had shorted out.  Cost about $80.  If there's other issues it can get pricey quick!

Try Kendor Marine/  Boat Mart in Milwaukee.  Couple years back I found a complete shifter assembly for a 1983 srv 200.

This is the part I ordered: Johnson Evinrude Trim & Tilt Switch Conversion Kit 176530 Control

Do a Google search and see if it looks like what you need.

Gentlemen, I was able to purchase all the parts needed to rebuild my control unit from boats.net. They were the cheapest of any online vendor and had everything I needed. Control  cables were ordered fro amazon. it is a straight forward process to rebuild this unit.

Good luck with your project!!
