Mick, I just bought a phoon and Im thinking about one of the heat exchangers rather than an air cooler. But there doesn't seem to be any info on these pwr ones for fords anywhere? I looked on pwr's site and they only list ones for holden and toyota?
I need one shipped to New Zealand, as Im gonna get the zf flushed and refilled soon, and wanna get one fitted at same time.
Are these are exact bolt on replacement (=bolt straight on in place of the Ford one?)
Is there a warranty and how long is it?
Is there a link somewhere with details and photo for this part?

PWO52900 – Ford Falcon BF/FG 6-Cylinder ZF 6-Speed Heat Exchanger Kit

Brochure link:

My invoice had it listed as PWO52900K - not sure what the K suffix means.

They are a direct replacement for the FG falcons, but, I remember reading about the difference in hose lengths when fitted to BFs.
PWR said they had lengthened the hoses, but, some others have had issues with them.

The thing I am now wanting to know, is how long or how many kms that pwr rate these things for. At that price (3 or 4x the price of a ford one) you would probably want it to last at least 100,000km? And isnt there still the possibility of a milkshake when using these, if one failed?
I will ask pwr what their recommended replacement interval would be.
Also, is it true that Nizpro have moved from these back to favouring under-car air coolers?

We offer 12 months warranty, but there is no rated lifespan for these units.

Provided regular services are done (changing oil and coolant) there should be no reason why it wouldn’t last the distance beyond 10 years. We have sold hundreds of units over the past 12 months and we haven’t had a failure to date. The core we have used in this design has been used successfully in Motorsport applications as an engine oil cooler for many years now.
Also, a number of local owners who track race their cars haven't reported any issues with high trans temperatures using our kit.

All general discussion regarding these should be directed to the original thread: http://www.fordforums.com.au/showthread.php?t=11390288

Does anyone on this thread know what the coolant hoses orientation is for a BF Typhoon. The trans shop fitted my pwr cooler, but they said the instructions for the hoses were for a different car.
They said they didnt know which hose went to which, as the instructions were for another vehicle (FG?) so they have had to just make a call on it.
Emailed PWR but no answer (Im in New Zealand).
At the moment the rear hose on the cooler is connected to the engine oil filter cooler, and the front hose on the cooler is connected to the plastic thermostat housing under the manifold.
Is that correct or should they be swapped?
Does it matter which direction the coolant flows thru the cooler? (there are no arrows on the cooler)
Anyone who knows please let me know. I imagine it's the same setup as a BF XR6T? Cheers, Brett

Just setting the record straight, brett7777, your email was answered very quickly (within 2 hours, which is 1st class service in my opinion considering this is within our business hours)

This is off topic and your answer is also answered here: http://www.fordforums.com.au/showpos...&postcount=246

Normally an hour to an hour and a half, the rubber hoses can be a nuisance to fit onto the fittings, also more time than this may be required to allow the auto to get down to the correct temp to check the level

Took me just on an hour to fit mine (engine/trans was cold). I premade the braided oil lines (i didnt use the **** rubber hoses supplied) before starting fitment of cooler also needed just under 1L of zf lifeguard6 oil to fill/top up trans after fitting the PWR cooler.

We have always had a braided hose kit option for the guys who don't like the rubber pushlock hose. (chosen to reduce cost of kit)

At the time i bought mine you couldnt supply me one with braided lines, so i swapped the pushlock fittings and rubber hose for speedflow braided fittings and some braided line with a racing engine builder mate of mine.

Win win for both of us.

Steve,

1. Can these heat exchangers be bolted onto a BFII with BTR 4 Speed auto?

Or

2. Does PWR make a similar heat exchanger for a BFII BTR 4 Speed?

The kit and fittings are setup for only the ZF 6-speeds.

We have a universal bypass kit which uses a traditional 280x255x19mm trans cooler with adapters as an alternative.

Mine has been in since September 2014 and all good. Will need to look at another one for the FG X late next year when the 3 year warranty is up for that one.

Have not seen a FGX fail as yet, but you would still have warranty if it did fail, we have just extended the group buy so you could get one now at the cheaper price and install at the end of your warranty

Orders have been placed, they will delivered straight from PWR to the customer, and due to the high demand it has slowed dispatch times, there was an email sent out on Wednesday explaining this. Bel spoke to PWR on Wednesday, they were going to get back to her. Bel and I are presently in hospital after the arrival of our daughter this morning so have not heard back at this stage.
