i have the same rad. in my eg. the extra pipes are for cooling tranny fluid on automatic models. cap em off and ur good. (nothing will leak, u just wanna keep stuff from getting in). dunno why the swap would blow ur rad tho.

did you happen to install a new radiator cap when you did the swap? how long after the swap did it happen?
