16v Radiator

Post by Kitch »

While I've got the rad out of the valver to sort this FDV pipe, I noticed it's a bit worse for wear. I'm gutted really, as it was solid as a rock before but it has sat around a lot recently.
Before I go searching, has anyone bought a new one recently for a reasonable some of money? I need to save the pennies now....the TVR just threw it's toy out of the pram! :lol: :(

Last one I got was £110 from Citroën.
But that was a couple of years ago now...

Probably as cheap to get your rad re-cored..
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Is the valver one the same as the Turbo Diesel one? If it is they do crop up on e-bay from time to time.

No, but you can modify a Pug 309 GTi rad to fit should you so desire..

Might be worth contacting seller (they have 25 of em) & seeing if they will sell at a cheaper price....

Definately a 16v radiator, but not sure on the price. I'll have to hunt around, but if it's a good A/M one like Nissens then it might well be worth it. I'd actually say Nissen's are as good as genuine, if not better.

If you can rake up some interest in other valver owners, you may be able to get a sizeable discount per unit, afterall, how long will it take them to shift 25???

Checked retail at ECP today and it's £76+. I should be able to get something off, but I'm gonna hold out and see how much my g/f can get them for from her work under the staff discount :)
