    2002 WRX 4EAT Radiator...

    Hi,
    I have the common failing radiator issue with my wrx with 132k (not bad). I am looking all over, and ma finding a lot of different options. All parts that have worn out over the years have ben replaced with upgraded parts. So, naturally, I am trying to do the same here.
    Should I upgrade to a Koyo with exterior cooling (if so, any recommendations on exact parts are appreciated)?
    or
    Stock, OEM for the 4EAT with the plastic...?
    Any help is greatly appreciated..I want to just order what I need and get this issue solved.

    Also, any recommendations on things to replace during the installations (hoses, etc).
    Thanks in advance,
    Drew

    i'm also in the process of changing my radiator. hoses are a must along with the thermostat. i went with the mishimoto radiator samco hoses and a subaru thermostat. i previously installed a hayden 403 trans cooler so i'm already set with that.(have an automatic too). nothings wrong with my radiator just upgrading in case something happens down the road. check out amazon for the trans coolers very good prices on there.

    Thanks, I appreciate your help.
    I ended up buying a Mishimoto Radiator/Mishimoto Silcone Hoses/Mishimoto Thermostat/Mishimoto Trans Cooler. The only issue I am having is determining where to install the trans cooler. Does it go in front of the radiator and between the a/c? Also, does it matter which way the lines are hooked up.
    Any help is appreciated...
