back from the dead...

my swap looks like it sits too far forward, that theres barely any room (maybe an ich or two) at the bottom of the radiator before contacting the engine...

when swapping a wrx radiator and fans, there wont be any issues as far as fans being pushed closer to teh engine?

Mine is really far forward too. I just left my stock radiator, haven't had a problem yet. Coolant never passes 206F. Normally at 176-180 while driving, no matter how hard.

Hope that makes sense? Works great.

I did the same thing and it will work just fine. The koyo radiator you are looking, part # R2218 from Vivid Racing. This radiator is the two core aluminum for the 99-01 subaru impreza 2.5rs. I paid $318+30 for shipping..........it fits just like the RS radiator and is perfect for you swap.......

Vivid Racing has the Koyo two core aluminum radiator for the 99-01 impreza 2.5rs for $318 plus $30 shipping. It drops right in and works great for the WRX swap.........
