I forget the exact set up, but you should be able to do it.. Fan'* will have to move but should be an ok swap


And I agree.... If you can put a Bonnie Back together..... I have the confidence in you to put a radiator in a Mitsu

Just make sure to check for coolant level sensors and transmission cooler lines. It can be embarassing to start pulling it out and realize you've just kinked four hard lines and ripped off a wire. I'm pretty sure it has both.
Nothing too hard though, it should be the work of a couple hours and a few beers.
