Yeah, they fit but with mods. I had a s5 rad in mine, had to make up adapter plates for it to bolt up. Got a koyo n-flow one to go in as well, again, had to weld wings on and mod inlet and filler, but it physically fits.

I actually only just put the new donk in this weekend so heres some pics. Modded rad intake to lose the dog-leg, modded filler so its vertical and clears bonnet, added wings for mounting. Turns out the bottom hose fouls on my extended engine mounts, as i did those after i modded the rad, but nothing a trim wont fit. Everything clears bonnet and undertray. Same story with std s5 rad, its bigger rad than std s3, it fits, but doesnt take too much imagination to make it happen.
