Default gd radiator in gc / fans question

Will the fans from my rs bolt onto the gd wrx rad? If not can I swap my rs fans in to the gd shroud?

I have GD radiator in my '95, the radiator fits great but you'll need a GD top hose I think. As for the fans, the little feet will sit in the radiator tabs, but the bolt holes don't line up at all, and I think I had to trim a little off one shroud near the top radiator inlet. Zip ties have been very effective for me, but you could probably fab up some simple brackets if you want to be baller.

It's not a direct swap for the fans but you should be able to use the WRX fans although it'll be a bit tight with the radiator hose.

We make a shroud so the upper bolt spots match up - iWire GC to GD Radiator Adapter Shroud
