Default Will an NB radiator work on an NA?

If not, what's different about it?

Thanks.

Sorry if this has been covered a million times, I tried searching but it yielded way to many threads to sift through.

No it will not fit. The way it mounts is completely different. I tried putting a stock NB radiator in my NB and I could not do it without modifying the radiator a good bit.

Yup. The mounting points and hardware are completely different. The NA radiators have two rails on the side, the NB units have sort of "feet" on the top and bottom.

They won't fit. Having said that, I have a NA FM TwinCooler on my NB2.
