I used 2 of the PWR ones in my last car. I think I paid around $130-140 in a shop for them though :?

I would spend the extra and get something that I know isn't going to start leaking in 2 months.

I have used heaps of the PWR ones ( fitted them to customers cars ) and haven't had any probs.
I make my own mountings for them, so they aren't stuck to the radiator with zip ties, that way you can remove the radiator without the hassles.

you should also ask, what happens when your radiator s**t itself and ATF fluid goes through your engine, and engine oil goes into your autobox :wink:

not sure what temp, but it will warm up quickly enough no problems...... trying to keep it cool enough is of most importance. Heat kills auto's !!!!

Yeah my temps used to sit around 95-110 once fully warm without driving too crazy....after a spirited drive on boost this changed though.
