Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

Hey guys,

Glad to see some interest in the rad! Hopefully we can get setup with Cal and show you all it's worth the price tag. If anybody is interested in buying the rad, it is in discounted pre-sale right now. We're looking to start shipping in September but the benefit to being patient is about 30% off MSRP.

Either way, feel free to let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

-Steve

Thanks!

So it will end up being in the neighborhood of $500?

In that price range, I think I'd just go with the Be-Cool. I know it can cool a V8 in an XJ (which I still haven't managed to talk myself out of).

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

This new radiator looks interesting. What is the overall thickness? And how wide are the tubes?

You do realize how wrong this is? If there are issues managing things now how will things get better when things expand?

Once it releases, it will go up to the $530 MSRP. However, our distributors can usually get customers a much lower price.

The overall core thickness of this radiator is 50mm with the tubes measuring 22mm in width.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks,

Sorry, but if there aren't enough people now to handle the site in a timely fashion, then it's only gonna get worse when things expand (which I don't agree with, but oh well).

Is there an industry accepted method of testing radiators and how they compare to each other?
The problem with all replacement radiators is that we don't have any real information as to how many BTUs any particular radiator is capable of removing.
Everthing is subjective, without any objective information.

I would spend $500 on a radiator that can be shown to be significantly better than Mopar's HD XJ radiator, PN# Mopar HD XJ radiator 52080104AC, the best of what I have tried.

Got data?

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

Mishimoto,
Looking at your Amazon reviews, there seem to be quite a few complaints about quality issues. Has there been a change to your design/production to remedy these issues?

I agree. I've thought this for a long time. The only thing I've ever seen is the HP rating on aftermarket radiators.

For what it's worth, on the product page Mishimoto does show several comparison charts to oem such as fluid volume, fin area and tube volume.

Re: What happened to the Mishimoto radiator thread?

530$ is just nuts. I would expect a quality 2 row all aluminum to be around 250$-300. Ebay cheapo are like 170$.

Mopar's HD XJ radiator 52080104AC is usually 250 to 300 and it has plastic tanks.
Funny thing with radiators, you usually get what you pay for and 500 for an all aluminum radiator with a lifetime warranty really isn't that atrocious if its designed well and does what its supposed to do.
