: How do i make a 92 radiator fit in my 95?

i thought they would be the same but the 92 radiator has 2 holes on the left side, while the 95 has a whole different set up. The 95 has no holes on the side and a smaller detached radiator. Can we somehow make it work?

Your 95 has an external trans cooler. The one you show has a radiator transmission cooler. That is what the two fittings on the left are for. If it will physically fit you can use it, just plug off the two ports. You may have to figure out the mounting of the external cooler to get yours on that radiator. This shouldn't be too big of a problem as it is just a couple self tapping screws and nut clips. I picked up a new radiator for mine off of ebay for $150 if that doesn't work for you.
