I doubt it was caused by too much pressure, the cap will bleed off excess pressure over 16 psi.
I've not heard about that many failed radiators (read about some but not that often).
Even with all the guys (including myself) that have had blown head gaskets that over pressures the cooling system, I don't think I've heard of any that also blew the radiator because of it.
BPD (Bullet Proof Diesel) sells an all aluminum replacement radiator as well as Mishimoto
