Charge cooler needs a rebuild, any recommendations

Hello chaps

Charge cooler had failed a couple of days ago, dumped water into the inlet = broken rod.... I got off lightly, steel crank, cosworth pistons and bore not hurt.

Any recommendations on who can supply and fit a new core, 4" deep, 10" wide and 8" long.

Proper one made by IMI Marston in my DB7

Heavy cast ends hand welded when new, they must have cost a lot.

Is the PWR/AVT one any good, I looked at their site and thought I may be able to get away with a pair of the small barrels, cut the ends off and let into my big box... Would be smaller 2 x 4" tubes rather than a 10"x4" block.

I have a pwr/avt on my cosworth and with the turbo running orange hot the intake is 10 deg above ambient . This has been even on the continent in temps of over 30deg while driving in mountain roads or on autobarns. So yes i would say it works very well. I have fitted a few of these systems to both turbo and super charged cars and never had a problem with intake temps. All the ones we do are installed as per the book small radiator with its own fan and small pump running all the time and we control the fan via the ecu or a termo swiitch. Have fitted a few Chinese copy coolers and to date never had one leak.

Thanks Dick

I have had a chat with Brice, sounds quite hopeful Tim will get a quote for the matrix to kick off things.

I have also tracked down a second hand one, eye watering @ 478 with vat and delivery, which may tied me over but at the cost of repairs I will look to get the original rebuilt for future security and hopefully sell this one on at a later point in time... I may not fit however as I have a phase I car, this is off a phase II, they changed the throttle bodies...
