    Will a Oem 2008 WRX radiator with on a 2011 Wrx?

    I'm looking to buy a oem radiator. Someone here on the forum, has a 2008 wrx radiator with the fans, and I'm wondering if it'll fit to a 2011 wrx? I can't find the oem number for the 2011 wrx.. Would help a lot, if anyone has any idea.

    Just curious why you need a new radiator so soon. And if you do why not go aftermarket like a Mishimoto?

    1. Long story short, my radiator is leaking.
    2. I rather go with OEM instead of aftermarket crap, and why would I spend more when I could get original equipment, and why would I need extra cooling for a stock engine...Either way, my engine is gonna be in the middle of the car temperature gauge..
    I'm not going on a track..I'm just doing very little highway and regular village driving.

    I agree that going aftermarket would be much better than used oem.

    Mishimoto or Koyo radiators are a LOT better than any OEM. It is far from being crap. I think Mishimotos cost around $300 & Koyos are $400.

    Edit: They are around $300.

    Well at this point, I can't afford it due to holiday time..and there's no overtime plus I need to pay for bills. I only have $200 to spend on it right now. I'll probably just buy the 2008 WRX radiator + fans shroud for $170 shipped until I can afford the Mishimoto or Koyos.
