I am pretty sure you need the one with a cooler, look on your car you should have four fittings on the engine side on both sides of the plastic tanks the passenger side is for the tranny fluid and the drivers side is for the engine oil.
Unless you have a seperate oil cooler than you can get a rad without an oil cooler. Either way your good. My Imp has a 9C1 oil cooler but I have a rad with the oil cooler fittings that are plugged up.

Yeah that is a good call and I should of mentioned the 9C1 difference as that is what I was going off off, don't have an Imp, yet :) and I couldn't remember, but was pretty sure that an Imp came with the cooler lines that went to the rad instead.

I am pretty sure that my car (same as OP's) has a trans cooler in the radiator too. I think the oil hook up is on the drivers side and trans hook up is on the pass.

My Imp came from factory with the 9C1 style oil cooler. On the SPID the code is KC4.

Your correct on the hook ups but you should have an external trans cooler thats hooked up to the cooler in the rad.
