Default Upgraded radiator options

Hey Nasioc. I've done some searching(nasioc,sl-i.net,google) in hopes of finding and answer to my question and the only thread that I've found is this one http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1415962 and he didn't have much luck finding an answer either. Are any of you BD owners running upgraded rads, if so which one?

My BD legacy has recently gone to the dark side(turbo) and the only thing I have left to address is the cooling system. I've found a rad for the 90-94 legacies that appears to be quite similar to our BD radiators http://www.mishimoto.com/mishimoto-s...acy-turbo.html does anyone know if this will fit?

I had no issues of overheating since my head gaskets were replaced back in 2008, even doing multiple track days and auto crossing every year. I may be over cautious but I'd rather spend a few hundred dollars for safety and piece of mind since I am introducing more heat into the cooling system then the factory intended.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated,
Robert

Well after doing some more research I stumbled upon this radiator. It's duel core and all metal, the price is right so I'll run it and see how things go. Just a heads up for any 2nd gen legacies looking to upgrade the cooling system.

I have seen some other turbo legacies use the upgraded rads for the wrx. As a bonus this allows u to use shorter piping for the front mount. Check on sl-I for front mount set ups and one of the guys uses a wrx rad.
