Sup Bob! Yea man, the radiators are different, but it's no worries. You just need to plug up the holes and you're fine. No need to swap them.

Not sure what you mean by the lack of turbo manuals, but if you're saying you can't find one....they never made a manual turbo 850 for the states. Just Europe.

I'm good, can't complain!

Oil cooler - A lot of people throw on a 99+ oil pan, since it has a built on oil cooler. You may want to check that out. I don't know a lot about it though, since I haven't done it yet.

You just bought a wagon? NICE. Umm, I was just down there two weekends ago, so I don't have any new plans yet. Do you need someone to drive it down there, or is it in parts? My sister and bro-in-law might be coming up here to visit me in Juneish. If you/we can't figure anything else out by then, they can bring things back. What do you need?

When I replaced the radiator in my T5M the new OEM radiator was the same part number for manual
and autos. Parts guy said that was all that they used now. The stock one comes with plugs for
the transmission cooler connections and you just leave them in. One tip is to cut a slit/small hole in the
plugs so they won't work their way out as they are heated and cooled (the air behind it is contracting and
expanding, as it heats and cools, and that can work the plug out).

Damn, that's going to be hard to do. I'll keep my eye out though.
