I'm definitely going to be getting one of these radiators, but had a quick question for those running them on their '02's. Is it easier to go with the radiator with the cap on it ('03+ WRX/'04+ STI dual cap setup) for filling purposes or should I stick with the non-capped tank only '02 one? Also, if I do end up going with the dual cap setup, can someone take a picture of their setup, so I have a general idea of what additional material is needed to adapt the duals. Don't want to bring a knife to a gun fight.

Geez, I'm so demanding. Thanks guys!

Thats one of the reasons i got this brand is because you can get either on with the cap or without. getting the one without makes install easier but it may be easier to burp the system with the 2 caps but im not sure. I would recomend getting the oem 2002 style without the cap for easier install and less expense.

I got the OEM-style because I'm stingy with my $$

Thanks guys! I'll save my money for the hookers and blow (or the coolant to fill up the radiator).

So what is needed to convert to the two-cap style of the newer ones?

It looks like just a plug for the breather hole on the new cap mount, and a new cap....
What am I missing?

I installed my cxracing radiator on saturday and haven't had any leaks thus far. Fitment was very good, and it looks badass.

The only real thing I'm worried about is that o-ring on the petcock. Did everyone just leave it on or did you guys use a different o-ring?

i had to use a crush gasket because my o-rings kept failing... but that was just me; no one else has seemed to have problems w/ the o-ring. i would test it first (if u haven't installed it yet) to make sure it doesn't leak.

I used the OEM petcock and o-ring because the new one was broken during shipping such that the o-ring was pinched and compromised. It took a few days of gradual tightening (just a tiny bit a day as it was warm), but went just fine.

If it were me, I'd use the new petcock and o-ring.

Everything is installed and working properly but it made me raise an eyebrow when I tightened it. I'll just keep an eye on it. The stock drain didn't appear to have a gasket or ring on it though.

i bought a crush gasket to use... the petcock that came w/ the radiator should have had an o-ring already on it.

Audiosavvy- how'd you use the stock petcock? mine didn't fit in the new raditator

Update: The Oring that came with the radiator on the draincock has failed. I did two fairly long trips over the holidays with no problem and it failed last night when I was taking my girlfriend out to eat. I noticed that the heat wouldn't turn on so I investigated. I pulled the oring out and just tightened the drain down as much as i could. There is no coolant leaking out. I also never saw a gasket on the stock one. Can someone verify that the stock plug does or does not have a gasket on it?

Mine did. As mentioned somewhere in this thread, the new o-ring and petcock was compromised in shipping, and so I re-used the stock o-ring/petcock.

The one that comes with it is not efficient and does not fit properly. I had to go out and buy a variety pack of o-rings and finally found one and fit snugged like the oem one did.
