Default JDM rad for WRX swap?

I'm in possession of a JDM WRX radiator (plastic side tanks, dual fans in metal housing) but no coolant reservoir tank. I was hoping to use it for my USDM WRX into '95 L swap.

Any ideas if the L tank can be modded adequately to fit, or should I try to find the matching tank which seems to fit lower and off to the side instead of being bolted directly off the plastic fan housing...anybody have one?

Also, are there any USDM model hoses that will work?

if it has the outlet on the left hand side its a wrx radiator they all have dual fans

the one above has the overflow tanks in the fender

and a gda/gdb/gdf radiator requires some modification to fit in a GC/GM chassie

Yup, sorry, I forgot to mention that it is the GC version. Looks just like the one in the picture. I didn't know the overflow was in the fender, makes sense now. Of course, the question is if it's going to be of any use in the swap...

Those JDM rads are not all that. Mine cracked in the plastic tank which is fairly common. There is no US equivalent rad, so I had to get one custom made.

This is the extent of the overflow 'tank'

It feeds from this


from a line directly across the radiator into this little thing.

Wow, is that all the fluid it holds? Or is the main tank in the fender (which I guess might be where the bottom hose leads to...)
