Default Radiator for EJ205 Swapped BK

I swapped a EJ205 motor out of a 2002 wrx into my 98 legacy gt wagon. It's overheating when I run at higher rpm on boost. I'm currently running the old legacy radiator which has god know how many miles on it and has some gunk in it. I'm guessing that it's partially clogged so at high pressure/heat, it's backing up and the engine is overheating.
I'd like to replace it with a high quality radiator that will handle the cooling duties of a modded ej205. I looked on ebay and found 2 row aluminum radiators for 1st generation and 4th generation legacies, but no 3rd gen. Does anyone know where I can get a good radiator for my car from? Or would a new radiator for a stock 2.5 gt work fine?
