Mishimoto has a good product, good price and warranty. Plus they have hoses, boots, and a degas bottle if you want the total solution.

Do more research on that mishimoto radiator. Think twice then think again. It has caused many temp issues for people, myself included. Mishimoto is well aware of the issue as well. There's some threads about it on powerstroke.org. if you are towing most certainly stay away from the mishimoto radiator.
Check out alradco instead.

I have a mishimoto intercooler too, can't tell you really if it helped, but I can tell you the WPE ported manifold was a better buy.

This is what a mishimoto radiator will get you


This is unloaded, not hauling not towing, up a slight grade.
Read those other threads and it'll all make sense

Another update, mishimoto has recognized their radiator for the 6.0 is not sufficient, and anyone with one currently is recommended to submit an email with receipt to mishimoto for a refund.

I've had this Performance radiator for about 6 years now with no problems. I tow in the mountains of Colorado roughly 12k lbs with no issues hot or cold days. They also make one with the plastic tanks I have no idea about the quality of that one much less it costs more. If you can get it locally do so there have been reports of them being damaged in shipping, most major cities will have a warehouse for them.

Stay away from the Mishimoto radiator. I have one and it's nothing but a big mistake.

I bought an EBay rad for 150 bucks or something like that, works great. Tig welded and seems stout. Also bought a CSF intercooler off eBay, badass for the price.

I'm more than happy with my csf 300$ (iirc) intercooler... is it better than stock? I don't know, but it is all aluminum and the core is a solid 1/2" thicker than the stock one... hasn't/shouldn't ever, split like the stocker .
