Core supports are the same.
Its the way the radiators mount that is different. The 00 and ups radiator mounts to the front of the support. The 99s mount below/behind. Not to mention the 99 and down radiator overflow tanks will not work with a 2000 and up radiator. So if you change that tank to an aftermarket one. You should be fine. You would also need a new radiator hose as the newerones have the cap in the middle of the hose.

ive seen someone replace the stock radiator with a real nice aluminum one before. That was years ago though but it looked real good and wasnt expensive

jmaack727, i got the parts and it looks to me that they bolt to the rad itself if not i can make it work, but does anyone know if ill have trouble with the trans cooler lines threading or being the right length?

and how many of you guys are usin a aux. cooler, what type/ brand, and how hard was it to install?

Yeah I do believe the tanks do with 4 bolts iirc. I completely forgot about that. Its what i have my jaz overflow tank mointed to. The 2 bolts on the driver side that are part of the radiator.
