    2002 WRX Aluminum Radiator for A/T (automatic trans)

    so my bugeye has suffered from the infamous radiator leak from the top seal...i don't want to replace it with another OEM radiator so i was searchin' online for an aluminum radiator for the 02 WRX's only to find that they only make them for manual transmission cars...

    is there an aluminum radiator available for the 2002 WRX's with automatic trans? any help would be greatly appreciated. i've searched the forums, but unfortunately for me, most if not all of the members drive manual. thanks for the help!!!

    I've not seen one, sorry. If true your options are to either mount an additional cooler for the transmission fluid or to use an OEM-replacement style radiator; most of these are fitted with the additional cooler and in fact, unlike the "race" style rads, the OEM style are hard to find without the cooler.
