thats a radiator for an 02 WRX...they dont have a radiator cap just the coolant tank on the intake manifold...I think it should still work though if you fill it using the tank on the manifold

I'd send it back and get the right one. The stock system is designed with 2 caps and 2 vent tubes to the resevoir. The bugeyes only have one vent since there is only the cap on the resevoir attached to the manifold. You'll end up leaking coolant once it gets warm unless you plug the second line. Won't be much but over time it will be noticable.
