For a 1gen they are, as long as it's a GT radiator. GT radiator's are a full 1" thick while LX or DX radiators are only about 5/8" thick.

Probe radiators are also the same. In fact, I have a 1gen probe GT radiator in my 1gen GT 626. The only difference with the probe is the mounts... probe and mx6/626 radiator mounts are different due to the body's.

Karma?:)

I've of the opinion that 90-92s all have the thicker radiators. I think the thin ones were only found on some 88-89s. The factory radiators are all old at this age, don't get one of them anyhow. Go for a new aftermarket radiator rather than a 15 year old one. All aftermarket radiators from the local parts stores (i.e. Modine) are the thicker (2 row) that I've seen. Also, the radiators are all interchangable as far as fit - 626, mx6 doesn't matter.
