stealth-wrx ran one years ago. I'm not sure how it worked, though. Why do you want to do that anyway?

It would probably work fine for drag/auto-x, maybe even daily driving if you use an efficient high quality core and shroud it well.

I agree. You will need to go with a Ron Davis or better piece. It will easily run you over a grand for something like this at the quality it needs to be.

Maybe not. It depends on what he's using the car for. We have a twin turbo Subaru that's local and runs a half size radiator (believe it's from a Civic) and it's fine for in-town, occassional drag strip use. Do you have actual experience or are you just assuming a traditional aluminum radiator won't work?

Good call Mr. Ellis! I always assume it's going to be a road race car, since Subarus are dumb for drag racing!

I'm using a C&R dual pass drag radiator that you might call half size. If I remember correctly it is the Scirocco model. It works just fine for daily driving. I Had to duct it for track driving though.
