Default '05 STi radiator on a '92 Legacy turbo

Is it possible? I was just looking at the two, and it looks like as long as I use hoses from an STi, the stock radiator from an STi would work on a Legacy SS. Anyone ever tried this?

FWIW, there may be some little stuff that would need a place (like the overflow bottle), but that's easy with some zipties

yes it will work just be ready to do a little bracket fabrication and of course get some matching nice new silicone hoses. you should also get the newer expansion tank as they are a whole lot more reliable than the plastic turbolegacy part.

sweet, that is what I wanted to hear. Will I have to make new brackets or just modify the stock ones?

just depends..you might be able to just drill out the mounting holes in the upper and lower rad brackets/mount to line up with holes in the t-leg frame support....cant remember if the spacing is dead on, or if there is a slight variation. but nothing that should be too big a deal to modify/fudgie it a bit.
