radiator for a swap?
 
I have an 03 WRX and my radiator just started to leak. it's stock and has about 125k miles on it, and i've been wanted to upgrade it anyway.

here's my question... im planning on getting this mishimoto radiator: [url=http://www.redline360.com/mishimoto-radiator-subaru-wrx-sti-MMRAD-WRX-01]Mishimoto Radiator Subaru WRX/STi (01-07) MMRAD-WRX-01[/url]

if i do an 2.5L swap, will this radiator still fit? it says it fits the STI also, but i dont know if there are differences when you start with a WRX and upgrade the engine to 2.5

do you guys recommend the 3 row, or is this 2 row fine?

daily driving mainly with maybe some fun time at the track but its a few times a year and nothign serious

thanks!

I belive that radiator will fit your car with either engine. For only $60 more I would go with the 3 row but, 2 row will work fine.

Mishimoto is trash. I don't know why anyone would pay that much for an off-brand when you can get a reputable name brand for the same price.

I thought Mishimoto is a brand name? which do you recommend and why?

No, Mishimoto is an off-brand.

Koyo and don't look back.

Know what sucks about those?

They don't make them for auto trans. I looked at those when my Foz's radiator blew. And the Koyo that would was 2x that price.
