Hey guys. Sorry, I'm an EA81 guy, but I have an EJ question.

Is it possible to use a radiator from a manual tranny 93' EJ18
in a 90' auto ej22?

Will it bolt up? Can I wire it? Is it possible?

They should bolt up as long as the body styles are the same, but i dont know if the core is of the same capacity.The obvious thing that is missing the auto tranny cooler. That can be worked around with an external tranny cooler. Also im not sure if the 1.8 can handle the heat load of a 2.2. In my opinion you never go smaller on a radiator.

Even if it doesn't bolt up, you fab some brackets from some scrap metal and wala! A lot of radiators will drop in this way.

always a good idea to install an aftermarket trans cooler anyway, so i'd do it and get the stand alone trans cooler going.
