Default Will a turbo chaarged radidator fit a non turbo?

Ok so I have a 2007 Impreza, it's the 2.5 base model not the wrx and it needs a new radiator. But I can't seem to find one anywhere all i find are radiators for the turbocharged WRX models. My question is, will the radiator for the Wrx fit the base non turbo model?

Physically yes. But because the turbo radiator doesn't have the cap you won't be able to fill it unless you fit a turbo top tank too.

An easy way to answer these types of questions (usually), is to search part numbers for both a Turbo'd and Non-Turbo radiator. if they are the same part number, and look identical, then yes they should work. If there are differences, then no it may not work.

If he uses the radiator from a WRX that does have a cap on it (04+ last I remember) then he won't need the turbo coolant reservoir.

So is there still a cap on the header tank?
