Lightbulb Pt turbo rad vs pt n/a rad

Hey all! I'd first like to say that I've frequented this forum for quite a few years and never registered. I just wanna say thanks to the countless people on this form who have helped my indirectly over the past few years.

Now my 03 pt turbo has a hole in the rad big enough that after a short drive 15km to work I need to put half a jug in of coolent in it. I have a 2.4l n/a 2001 pt that I bought as a donor car when I was involved in a 6 car pile up, and Im wondering before I go though the trouble of removing the rad if it will work in my turbo. I've looked around and people say that they won't work interchanged.
Though I haven't found any strong suggestions that say it wouldn't. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Short version: will a 2001 n/a pt cruiser radiator fit/work in my 2003 pt cruiser turbo?

It's a different P/N. You can check yourself on The Turbo has an intercooler and a different fan motor.

thanks, is this a reliable place to get parts from considering my dodge dealership wants almost 600$ cad for a new rad and theres one on the website for 133$?
