Any MT 335/135 owners tried the PWR radiator?

Any results from trying this? I understand the AT guys had some fitment issues with the heat exchanger, anybody got MT results?

I was thinking of it at some point, but needed to have it shipped from Australia. In the end, I did not order as I have never had any trouble with overheat. It never gets too hot over here, as it does in Texas. I do have aftermarket oil coolers though.

So what ended up happening is PWR North America is basically non existent. Turner didn't have it in stock and they could't get a hold of them either. As bummed as I was, we had no option but to put the stock radiator on.

I know the guys at Advan can get them, but it'd almost be cheaper to have a local shop build a custom radiator than pay shipping from Australia. Thats disappointing.

Bummer. Guess I can scratch this potential mod off the list as I'm debating whether or not to build up my car for the track or sell and get an M3.
