OK i need a new Radiator for my EF Falcon.
Now i can get the normal radiator for about $250 for Autobarn/Repco.
But i find this Aluminum Radiator on ebay for $350.|65%3A1|39%3A1|240%3A1318

My question has anyone used this radiator before and
1. Does it fit well?, Because i don't want to have to mod it.
2. Is the quilty good?
3. should i buy it over the plastic one?

I have been told the PWR one sells for around $800 and i am sure it will fit and be of good quilty but i don't want to spend that much nore do i need it performance wise. I just dont want the plastice side tank to brake again.

consider what you are using the car for, and what kind of driving you do, and what ambient tempratures you drive in during summer. I think that for normal driving, not towing ect than a normal radiator is fine but you need more control of your cooling fans, Ie: manual overide to keep temp gauge in the clear,

on the other hand if you are towing racing or ambient temps high, would be a good investment.

I just picked up a new radiator of ebay for $230 deliverd natra brand OEM specification, but i also have control of may fan operation and can force higher speed on by pressing a button, temp gauge dosent rise past 'A' in Normal on the gauge

I bought one, possibly from the same seller I can't remember, about 3 years ago: Fitted perfectly and absolutely no problems, even after a massive overheat due to total water loss (my fault)
