Default EG33 swap in Impreza (Radiator)

First, chuck the AC....After much Ebay browsing of hundreds of different sized and shaped radiators I found what I THINK will work nice in a stock EG33 application. The Radiator from a Saab 900 Turbo (80's and early 90's) fits nicely BETWEEN the upper and lower crossbeams and has the correct locations for the inlet and outlet. This is a used parts only swap (i.e. wife approved) so custom stuff is not in the option list. The Saab had a similar BPH level so I think it will work.
Next is two SPAL 11 or 12" pusher fans. They have a model that is 2.05" wide in the center and only 1" on the edges. I'm planning on notching 1" from the rear side of the bumper beam for the center rear of each fan. The beam should still be in good shape....Theoretically anyway. I gained 5 or 6" with the AC dump/new Rad position. I have pics that I'll post as soon as I'm qualified to do so. Did I mention this was all happening very slowly?
