Plenty of the Koyo in stock right now if anyone is interested:
Koyo High Performance Radiator 12 11 10 09 08 07 06 Subaru Impreza
Here's the link to the Mishimoto one as well:
Mishimoto Aluminum Racing Radiator 12 11 10 09 08 07 Subaru Impreza
Although I am sad to hear about brfatal's experience, I haven't had any issues with the mishimoto radiator that's installed on my car. Keep in mind that Mishimoto also has a lifetime no-hassle warranty.

Let me know if you guys have any questions.
I'm debating on reusing the hose clamps since I'm afraid of worm style digging into the silicone material and damaging them.
Check into worm clamps that are specifically for soft hose and tubing. McMaster Carr sells them and they will not dig into the material since they have a liner band on the inside that protects from doing just that.
I bought a box of these for my radiators (I have multiple projects) and am already running low. I have also used ABA "Swedish style" hose clamps. Same function, but a little nicer. You can also search into German worm clamps as they are the same design.
P.S. For others who are interested in the specific clamps I ordered from McMaster Carr here is the part number: 54235K55
Brand: Ideal Tridon Lined 301 SS
Clamp Diameter: 1 1/8"-1 3/4" (29-44mm)
Band Width: 9/16"
These seem to be a pretty common size. These have worked on different types of radiator/silicone set ups on 4-different cars I have tried them on.
