I completely agree, I would rather have the stock radiator in there. Also thank you for the input and advice I'll take any and all I can get about the 6.0.

unless the all aluminum radiator had less actual volume in the core it should cool as well as the OEM. That said I seem to remember that some of the early Mishimoto's did run hotter than OEM. I had a Alradco, actually 3 that ran about 20 degrees cooler than stock when towing, they just couldn't build one that fit right or would hold coolant for more than 3 months. I am now running a stocker and towing 15K in 95 degree ambient I see about 205 on level and it will climb to 210/215 on the hills.

I had a stock radiator, then the mishimoto... the mishimoto ran well over 10 degrees hotter.. then mishimoto acknowledged the problem and came out with a V2.. which still ran 7 degrees over the stock radiator. They are crooks and know it . I threw it away and went back to a stock radiator.. bam back to normal operating temperature

I have a BulletProofDiesel radiator. After installing it, I have seen some higher temps, but think they are primarily an issue w/ the fan operation. I am not unhappy with the radiator, but still question its capacity in the back of my mind.

I am beginning to agree that the OEM radiators are probably the way to go. I am also beginning to think the same way about the water pumps.

Wonder how many vendors are buying the same junk aluminum radiators and slapping their name on it.

What is all of them.......

225 id start worrying. I think 235-240 eot is where the standpipe for the oil filter melts and then youre screwed... I have kind of a unique situation with all the extra **** under my hood though, and its a billion ****ing degrees outside... Before the compounds i was sitting around 198-200 ect and about 205-208 eot.

installed a new motorcraft tstat. now I'm running 195 ect and 198-201 eot. that brought my temps down but we will see later today when its 102 and the AC on max. I'm still going to pull the aluminum radiator and put in a stock one soon as well.

Well.... on the way home it was 98 out, AC on max she was still climbing to 211.2 ect and 215 eot. When the ect hit 211.2 the fan would come on then bring the temps back down to around 205ect and 209eot and then slowly climb up again then fall with the fan coming on.

My question?? is why do the temps not stay at a consistent number? I'm going on flat ground!!!! ANYONE???

and this was at 65mph with the cruise on

Radiator can’t shed heat fast enough. If you haven’t already, make sure it and the intercooler are clean, as in no grass/bugs/dirt, etc in the fins. If they’re clean, get rid of the Mishimoto and put a Motorcraft radiator in it.
