D.A.R.E. is a member here who is stationed in Japan. He's great at getting parts and sending them over. Japan is the best place to find what you need. My car hasn't had any cooling issues though. What type of temps are you seeing?

94 JDM Wrx shares the same rad as the 92 Legacy Turbo. The rad fan shrouds are the steel ones.

If you need the rad out of a turbo legacy I might just have what u need. I also am going to have a wrx rad also. Pm me and let me know. The rad is just a phone call away.

Negative, Gino. There are a couple different versions of the radiators. The USDM WRX radiators require the USDM radiator fans, custom top mounts, and retrofitting the A/C. Some of the really new USDM radiators have a fill cap on the radiator (man, that would have been nice) whereas the older ones don't.

thanks for the correction..

sorry to be off topic but..

what do you guys think

fill cap in radiator vs. the reservour setup
I've heard the jdm's with the reserve tank are a better setup

whats the difference?

The reserve tank is in place to negate the need for turbo timers. The coolant heats/boils/whatever and actually cycles the coolant.

Aside from the different fans, the inlet and outlet are in different locations. Only problem with this particular early style rad is interference to the A/C condenser lines on the GC bodies like the 98-01 RS when doing an early JDM swap.

No, but if you want the rad out of the turbo car I can get that. I allready sold the motor. If you want a wrx rad I will have one of those also.
