Oliver Parkinson – Nissan Silva S13 Drift Car powered by RB26DETT twin turbo engine – 23rd October 2015
Just wanted to send over a quick email and let you know I got the car finished for that event we spoke about. Everything went great, the car ran cool all weekend, couldn’t have been better! Also the SPAL fan is really impressive, at times it’s a little too good for the car.
My front end is basically just PWR, very happy with how it turned out. Here are some photos!
OLIVER’S CAR RUNS THE COMPLETE PWR COOLING PACKAGE INCLUDING RADIATOR, INTERCOOLER, ENGINE OIL COOLER & POWER STEERING COOLER.
Justin Wade – 2014 Queensland Improved Production Car Championship Winner, 26th Novermber 2014.
Hi Steve, a big thank you and to PWR for helping us win the 2014 QLD Improved Production Car Championship. This included 3rd place at the Bathurst 12hr supports 2014. We use the 55mm core custom radiator for the engine, PWR oil coolers for the diff and power steer. All units have proved their worth many times over. Quality is always of the highest standard. Thanks again for your assistance. Couldn’t do it without PWR products.
Regards, Justin Wade.

It’s not often that I can write to a member of our Defence Industry base as a satisfied customer, so I thought I would drop you a note to let you know what a fine job your team has done with the design and manufacture of a new radiator for my 1987 TVR350i.
Your young sales engineer, Mitch Barnes, has a first class customer engagement attitude and worked with me over a period of weeks to ensure the drawings were correct, my change requests readily accommodated and the end product was ready as planned. Our thoroughly professional young man who was responsive and clearly knows his stuff.
Mitch also provided advice to help me decide how best to improve the cooling systems for the car including a new header tank and how best to mount dual fans selected to achieve the desired air flow at low speed.
The result is a very high quality product both in design and manufacture – a work of art! It’s a shame that the Wedge nose on the TVR will hide much of it.
I picked up the radiator and header tank yesterday, will fit the items this weekend and should have the car on the road by Sunday. Hopefully my theories on engine cooling hydraulics prove to be correct and the TVR can finally handle summer.
Thanks for doing such a great job, and I can see why you have achieved global customer penetration. I can now speak in public as being a recipient of your quality of service and product as a customer, not just a general advocate.
Joe Natoli – 15th November 2014
I installed the rad in the gu patrol 2 weeks ago, and after a couple of good testing trips towing, I can tell you that my temps have completely corrected themselves. I now cruise on 100 km per hr and doesn’t go over 85deg. I am extremely happy with the pwr product.
Thanks again for your advice and we’ll manufactured rad, it has lived up to its expectations.

“FAILURE TO TRANSMIT”
I’ve had a 2008 Ford Falcon for a few years, which I bought to tow a 2300kg caravan. Like everyone else I had transmission overheating troubles but I bought a PWR transmission cooler. It was easy to fit, and cheap, and we’ve just completed a 4000km trip with no overheating issues, even at the hot time of year.
Ford clearly has a problem with these coolers, which we’re raising directly with Broadmeadows, but PWR does excellent work, including supplying coolers for the Red Bull Formula grand prix racing cars.
Ross Graham – 6th February 2014
PWR supplied this radiator package to fit to my 1977 LX SS Torana Muscle Car late last year. The car runs a 700 hp LSX cast block engine. I have recently competed in two meetings & the results have been great. After struggling to contain temps below 220 degrees the car now runs at 180 – 190 degrees. Fantastic.
Thanks Ross – New Zealand.
Benjamin Stevens – 3rd February 2014
I just want to say thanks for such a fantastic product. I purchased a 42mm close mesh radiator for my 1995 Lexus LS400 and wow, it has made such a difference. It was been in the car since about April last year so this is the first summer that it has really been tested through. With the factory radiator the car would nearly boil over and get into the red very easily when idling on a 40+ deg day. We have just been through another period of 38-42 deg days in Victoria and the car has been perfect, even idling with the AC set to 22 deg on a 40 deg day, the highest engine temp I have seen this summer has been 82 deg. So all I can say is keep up the great work because you have a very happy customer here. Your radiator has made even the hottest days a breeze and I no longer have to worry about overheating cars.
So again, thanks for a great radiator.
Craig Eveleigh – July 12 2013
Just an email to thank you for all your help with the cooling system on my TD Cortina.
The custom radiator & water to air barrel cooler works very well.
The car has a stock FG 4 Litre turbo engine with a GTX 35 turbo running on E85.
It made 618 whp with 1670 nm of torque….quite a handful but intake temps & engine temps
were very good..
Thanks again for all you help & I have attached a few photos of the car & how its set up 🙂
Ziggy – Ziggy’s Hot Rods – July 2013
“A quick note guys, to update you on how very thrilled I am with the custom made radiator you produced for our WARHORSE 427 project.
The car is now three years old, and has seen a lot of road and cruising use and promotional days, so as a result it has been started and driven many times over. As an example, at this year’s Summernats, the car was driven basically all event, we lapped the grounds and cruised between the event and the border and back to the city centre, we had a blast in 43°C heat, without having any issue with the temperature. No overheating, nothing, – it ran faultlessly, perfect even. During the very slow, but highly enjoyable Summernats City Cruise, quite a few cars did overheat, but not WARHORSE 427.
PWR produce a super product, great service. Seriously, what more could you ask for?…. I can’t wait for our next project to be finished and for another owner to enjoy such reliable and fuss free cruising as the rides from Ziggy’s and the products from PWR provide.
I would not dream of using anything else, but PWR, cheers, Ziggy.”
Derek Binns – Crane Trans Pty Ltd – June 2013
I have fitted my new radiator, shroud and 2 x 12″ Spal fans that I purchased from you. I have sat the car idling for an hour, driven around in traffic, done a 100 miles per hour (not kilometres) down the highway, burnt out a new set of TA radials and do you think that I can get this car of mine to overheat?
Thank you Adam, I can’t get the grin off my face!
Thumbs up PWR.
Bill Crisan –Dallara USA, IRL Cars May 2013
We received the water rads yesterday, and the oil coolers will be delivered tomorrow.
I can’t thank you and all your colleagues at PWR enough for making and delivering these orders in such a short time frame.
We really appreciate your efforts. Please express our “thank you” to the boys on the floor for getting it done!
All the best
Brendon Moohin – 2013
Just a quick email to say a massive thanks for your support during the build!
We had the unveiling on Saturday morn with a great crowd appreciation, Saturday night we had a special dinner function and the car received a top 10 award and a invite to meguires superstars best of breed section at motorex in Sydney held in July!
Sunday also seen the car receive top bucket award!
Thanks again for your help!

“With PWR we are first of all looking for a competitive radiator package, and secondly we are looking for reliability. To finish first, first you have to finish. As well, PWR gives us a very good personal service to help us adapt the systems to our needs.”
Joe Calabro Bustech – 2013
“When I heard that PWR was manufacturing and supplying radiators to Formula 1, I wanted all my buses to have PWR coolers not only for their quality but also to give Bustech the opportunity to use the PWR name for our marketing.
It’s great to be involved with PWR. “
Mario – 28th November 2012
Just a thank you for your time and help the other day, intercooler arrived yesterday and looks tops can’t wait to see it behind the Datsun grill! ,thanks again Mario
Christopher – 23th November 2012
Just like to thank you for all your help and let you know that at 11:46 am this morning our new car was finished. Couldn’t have done it without your help and now we can tune over the weekend. Thanks and have a good one.
Chris Nelson O.A”
Ben – 2nd August 2012
Finally got the truck running yesterday.
The cooler looks and performs awesomely, after 10klms of hard driving it got up to 45 degrees, previously this would have been around 100.
Everyone that has seen it loves it, you’ll probably get a few more orders after this weekend.
I’ll send some pics through next week.
Thanks for all your help.

Hi Stuart and Steve.
I’ve written up as a full article my experiences with my hot running MGA, culminating in us designing and fitting the PWR radiator. So far this has been published in the NSW MG Car Club monthly magazine, and has just now been published in the USA in an exclusively MGA related magazine.
Just in case you get any requests for copies of the radiator that you supplied me, could I suggest that the mounting captive nuts are mounted 2 or 3 mm wider apart (measuring across, not top to bottom). The holes in the mounting panel on the car are actually slots to allow for tolerances, but I had to relieve these inward quite some distance on my car with a rat tail file to fit my radiator. These cars are all now over 50 years old so most will have had some damage and repair, including mine, but I think the dimensions I’m suggesting should work better. Regards, Tom
Daniel – 11th April 2012 Hi Stuart, just thought I should let you guys know that I finally got around to fitting the tank on the weekend and I could not be more impressed at the quality of the item and the professionalism from you and PWR in general. Keep up the great work!
Mitchell – 26th March 2012 Mate the radiator fits well and looks sensational. Car runs on around 190 farenheit, it seems to work better than the piece of crap I had in it, will have to get it out on a hot day to really test it out but so far so good. The quality of that radiator is second to none I am extremely impressed with the workmanship and the quality of the finished job.
Adel – 23th March 2012 Hi Stuart, I have checked with my brother if he had received the intercooler or not yet as I came back to Egypt now and he informed that everything is ok and the intercooler is perfect:) I just wanted to say thanks and hope to cooperate with you again soon. Thanks again, Adel, TPS garage
Stuart – 9th March 2012 he gentleman that purchased the Patrol rad from you last week( the on where he waited while you modified that rad for him) rang and said to thank you. Also, he said to say he was very happy with the rad. He has always had over heating problems and last week he towed his van to Caloundra with the PWR rad in the car and he had no over heating problems at all – It was a relief not to have to watch the temp gauge all the time.
George – 17th August 2011 Hey Luke, Just wanted to say I recieved the radiator for my Elise the day after your email. After installation I thought there was a problem… During bleeding the system, I wanted to ensure thermostat was fully open. So would’ve liked to see 105*C… But after 2 1/2 hrs, I had a peak of 97*C! Not enough to engage full thermo-fan cooling… And my car was still on stands, without cool air directing shrouds! While you may not recieve many orders from Lotus owners, I’d like to say…. DAMN! How is this possible!?!? Any Lotus owner who buys other than the PWR product is either:
- Simply unaware
- A “Badge Snob”
- Not given the option by their mechanic
Owners should take greater interest in the improvement of their car. I’ve received info that Manufacturer puts a 3 yr duty cycle on their radiator fitted to the Elise… I ask why a manufacturer would Install such a product? In my book. I think any Aussie Elise owner who doesn’t buy your product (when needed, & done appropriate research) is simply UN-Australian! Thank You PWR!
Todd – 10th August 2011 Hey Steve, I fitted my radiator on the weekend so just wanted to shoot you a quick message and thank yourself and Ryan for all your work and patients to get this thing sorted out. The radiator fitted in perfectly and everything bolted up exactly where it should be. In fact it was probably easier to get in than the factory item. It looks like it is meant to be there and is so far doing it’s job rather perfectly. Thanks again for all your help, you and Ryan have both been awesome to deal with. I couldn’t be happier with the final product, is exactly what I wanted.
Michael Hart – 10th May 2011 Adam Everything arrived yesterday afternoon and is perfect! Great to deal with true professionals for once. Thanks very much for your help.
Michelle Griffiths – 6th May 2011 Hi PWR, Hubby got his radiator for his quad yesterday, it fitted perfectly, every tab fitted in the right spot, every weld was excellent, it was pretty and shiny (shame you cant see it because it looks so good) it is a pleasure to deal with a company that makes parts that actually fit properly for a change. One small suggestion, a PWR sticker in the box would help advertise your great work – I suppose you don’t need advertising because you do such a good job. Thanks so much My hubby races as Old Fart Racing and he is very pleased.
Nathan Farrugia – 9th March 2011 Hi Luke, Radiator was excellent. Tuned it Thursday night 26psi 604 rwkw. Stays around 90-94 with me smoking 3rd and 4th gear out of every corner @eastern creek. Had to turn the power down to 19 just so I could pedal it before the limiter couldn’t catch it on 26psi. 4th gear went missing at eastern creek somewhere so time for a Glide. Ready for tezza to race shortly should rip. Epic weekend lots of midnight shifts but everything worked out in the end and the car still starts beautiful so it’s a massive win! Thanks again.
Derek Lobwein – 25th February 2011 Good afternoon Luke, The tank arrived this afternoon and within 20 minutes its all fitted up. Fits like a dream, and looks spot on. Pass onto you design team, welders and polishers – bloody good job, yet another good example of good tradesman at work.
Adam – 25th February 2011 Awesome mate. cheers heaps.. ill be in contact when it starts going back in.. No wonder you are busy mate…very highly recommended by people that I’ve spoken to.
Joshua Brett – 10th January 2010 Hey Adam I thought I should give you guys some feedback on that barrel cooler I fitted. The customer was more than happy with the end result for a street car, we still have to run it at the motorplex with the ice but works a treat on the street. We got the benefit of hard mounting the cooler to the engine and running solid pipe work with o-ring joins as well. Anyway share it around bud, Great product and we are both very happy with the result Thanks again
Glenn Holdaway – 8th October 2010 Hi Ryan, I’ve been meaning to email you the past few days, but it’s been a bit hectic here. Just wanted to say thank you for all you did with helping me out with my radiator for my Formula 500 speedway car. We received it via AAE on Monday afternoon, which was quite a surprise. Getting it all organised and delivered to Kalgoorlie in WA in what I think is a pretty short time frame from me originally making contact with you was fantastic. We’ve taken a look at it and it looks great. We will be fitting it into the car tonight/tomorrow and if all goes well with things we are heading to a practice session tomorrow afternoon, so it’ll get tested out then. I’ll drop you a quick email to let you know how it goes. Once again, thanks for the great service, we really appreciate it!
Gordon Robertson – 11th August 2010 Hi i got the fedex box yesterday morning and and the resovoior looked amazing cant wait to get it on the car ill be sure to let everyone that wants one to contact you for them. thanks again Gordon
Mike Stephens – 29th August 2010 Fits nicely as you can see and made a lot of difference down low, there is better air flow and pressure due to less restriction from the OE intercooler. The liguid to air cooler really knocks the heat down from the turbo outlet and have been taking air temp measurements on the Manifold air, I have been using a Wi fi transmitter from the OBD socket to transmit the ECU information to my IPhone- a really cool system except it has a fault and is being replaced under warranty so when I get it back I hope to be able to monitor and increase boost pressure for some more Torque,will let you know the Dyno results. Very happy with the intercooler supplied by PWR.
Bruce Nolan – 26th July 2010 Luke, Just a bit of feedback on the radiator and intercooler I recently purchased. Everything fitted perfectly and the quality looks really good….. Thanks for your help with this. I wish some of the other suppliers I deal with were as professional. Thanks again.
Shane Murray – 21st July 2010 It looks fantastic and the quality of workmanship is awesome.I actually took my car for it’s first big drive with the new radiator on the weekend, performed great….
Ivan Munro – 17th May 2010 The kit fitted perfectly (M1900 Supercharger) except for slight clearance problems with the bonnet. When I bought the CV8 I was disappointed with the grunt as being a road racer(bikes), I do have high expectations. Fitting your kit has transformed the car, it now accelerates from 2000 like a 350 should. We used EFI live to map the car and this product is every bit as good as your kit. The car behaves just like OEM unless you push the right foot. A great product
Earl Winter – 4th May 2010 Adam, radiator arrived , fits perfect, and I’m really happy with your product. So thanks mate great dealing with you, couldn’t ask for better! Thanks PWR
Evan – 4th May 2010 G’day mate, just received the radiator from the postie. It’s safe and sound, no damages etc. You guys rock, it looks so sweet just sitting in the bay not even mounted! Very pleased, thanks for your efforts. I’ll send you some pics once it’s all mounted up. Thanks again
Matthew Algie – 3rd March 2010 Hi Brad, the radiator arrived yesterday- it took all of 5 minutes to fit, everything lines up perfectly and I reckon it even fits slightly better than the old stock radiator did! Very pleased with the results, and the workmanship is absolutely top notch. Thanks again for all your help with it- I really appreciate it.
Madison – 26th February 2010 Hi again, Thank you very much for all your help with designing my intercooler. It looks fantastic and fits perfectly, so overall i am thrilled with the level of quality and service you provided…
Colin Hewitt – 24th February 2010 I purchased an intercooler not long ago and was very pleased with it and the service, and was wanting to purchase a surge tank now. The part number is PWA6005 with the dash fittings…
Paul Seychell – 25th January 2010 Hi Adam, Just to let you know that the radiator has been fitted to my car and it’s absolutely awesome, as was the fit and finish! From running around just before Christmas at around 195F+, the car now travels on the expressway at 168-170F! It really has made a significant difference and now I can enjoy the car a whole lot more without worrying about looking at the temperature gauge constantly. With the weather we had experienced in Sydney last Saturday (42˚Celcius), the car idled along in traffic at around 180F with the SPAL 16” pull style fan keeping the temperature reliably constant. Thanks again for all of your help and all the very best for 2010 (Thanks also to Mathew)… One extremely happy customer!
Danny Tuelstrup – 21st January 2010 Radiator fitted like a glove. Thanks
Tony Johnstone – 12th January 2010 Amount of $xxxxx transferred to your nominated account today. Thanks for the prompt service.
Marco Oritz – 6th January 2010 Thanks a lot for your prompt response. In order to calculate ship order you can use San Jose, Costa Rica. As I said thanks a lot for your help and excellent service.
Steve Silverthorn (USA) – 4th December 2009 I wanted to let you guys know that the rad. and intercooler showed up today for robinson. They look unbelievable, I don’t believe that I have ever seen it done better than that. So, thank you for that…
Peter McIntyre – 30th November 2009 I have just purchased a radiator for my Kawasaki from you and I would like to congratulate your manufacturing staff. The workmanship is second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone.
Mal (mjrconserv@….) – 17th November 2009 Received the radiator yesterday, looks awesome, the quality is great.
Richard Shea – 5th November 2009 Received the radiator yesterday, looks awesome, the quality is great.
Mark O’Connor – 16. October 2009 The car was amazing at Bathurst last weekend and the new supercharger with the new IC setup was brilliant. We managed to wipe 18 seconds off a laptime compared to when we were there for the 12 hour in Feb…. Thanks for all your help in getting the bits and pieces to us in time, it is greatly appreciated
Christopher Simpson – 21. September 2009 Just a quick note to thank you and the team at PWR for the excellent product and service you supplied to us. The right hand side radiator for the YZ125 was a perfect fit and manufactured to the highest standard…my son and his race partner getting first place in the junior lites and the overall series win. Without your excellent product this result would not have been possible.”
Adrain Gray – 02. August 2009 Thanks guys – purchased the recommended trans cooler and fitted yesterday – Fitting instructions spot on. Congratulations on a great Australian product.
Tim (imk917@…) – 17. June 2009 The Giocattolo radiator turned out great. We’re impressed by the quality and how quickly we received it. The customer was up today and he was impressed with the radiator and also the 5kg it will shed from the cars weight.
Darrell Rytledge – 28. May 2009 …Very impressed with the product, you and your company were very easy to deal with and I wiuld recommend you and your company to everyone.
Evan (supamac@…) – 16. April 2009 Just a quick email to let you know that I received the 4 NSW radiators today. I also just wanted to thank you for the many hours of hard work you put in to completing the order and helping me out along the way. It has been a pleasure dealing with you and your colleagues at PWR. I would be only too happy to recommend you guys to all my mates.
Nicholas Balttah – 23. April 2009 Thanks once again to all involved in the rapid build for Powercruise, without the input from you the deadline would not have been met.
Richard Shea – 11. March 2009 Oil cooler arrived safely. We’re happy with it, looks great. Will be getting in touch with you soon with some other jobs.
Stephen Schultz – 09. February 2009 I received the radiator in perfect condition. You fellows are really artisans…it’s just beautiful, & will work perfectly when I get it fully mounted. The craftsmanship is just excellent. Thanks for the nice job.
Bill Van Sambeek – 28. January 2009 Just wanted to let you know that I am very happy with the radiator sent prior to Christmas, it is a better fit then the original and works well. Thanks for your patience and correspondence and again, very happy with the final result.
(NBabic@…) – 01. December 2009 I got the radiator Friday. Just wanted to thank you guys for all your help!! The radiator is perfect!!!!!! You can’t get better then that!!!
Diesel Roy – 10. November 2008 Hereby I would like to thank you for the excellent radiator I received last Friday. I am really impressed with the craftsmanship it is made with. I am sure I will purchase more items from you in the future.
