Around we go again - Full Alloy Rad for EZ30...

Postby montyLalor » Sun Nov 15, 2020 11:36 pm

Hi everyone,

I note that this has been covered before - purchasing a full alloy large capacity radiator for the EZ30...

This time around it's a PWR 'custom' make that I've personally verified as being a 100% plug-and-play replacement for the teeny tiny OEM radiator (that should've only ever been used on the dak-dak EJ natmos).
Hey Subaru! This is not Japan :roll: ...


My personal verification path started with reverse-engineering a 3D model from the OEM itty bitty rad...

...and submitting it with a drawing (generated from said model), which dimensioned all the key features that would make a full-alloy rad plug-and-play. I was subsequently sent a PWR drawing (don't ask for a copy - the answer is no!) that I quickly marked up with minor revisions as it was a drawing they had done for a pre-update EZ30.

So, I will be purchasing a 42mm core full-alloy PWR rad for (sit down if you're not already) thirteen hundred and fifty dollars and fifteen cents (incl.).
Yes, it's much steeper than I'd hoped - but so is the rapid ascent of the daily temps here in Brisvegas atm! :shock:

Yes, this purchase is driven by paranoia, but also because there's nothing else credible on the market at the moment... Fenix are 12 months out on their version and I will not buy a ChinaBay special.

So if you feel the need, I'm just informing everyone that PWR have a design that's ready to go with a reasonable 4-5 week lead time.

Good to know, thanks for sharing and massive props for the effort!

I've been thinking of rads now that we're entering Summer. Desperately need to upgrade due to beach driving.

Definitely need to spend some time checking out prior threads on the topic...

Anyway, let us know how it goes please!

Hello, apologies for the late reply. I'm wondering if there's any updates? Perhaps a PWR relevant part number? I'm currently looking to replace my OEM rad and I figure I may as well upgrade it at the same time.
Kind Regards,
