Bullet proof vs. Mishimoto

I changed out the clutch fan and water pump the other week and disturbed the seals for the plastic top and bottom of the radiator and now they are leaking. I am in need of a replacement and want a one piece radiator. I have seen some threads on the mishimoto radiator, but have not seen anything on the bullet proof one. They are both similar, but has anyone had a bad experience with one or the other? I have seen that the mishimoto is a quick easy install, any problems with the bullet proof?

The bullet proof is about $100 cheaper depending on where you get it, but usually you get what you pay for. Just trying to figure out if this is the case.

Have you used this? What kind of warranty do they offer? I am going to contact them on monday to find out. Looks like a solid product, anyone have any experiences with them?

I just bought one of these Saturday direct from Performance Radiator. They are NOT all aluminun any more. The people that worked there were surprised when they opened the box. Its in the back of my truck right now. Its looks like a good replacement and has a Three year warranty. I also sent a pm to OP.

That puts me back to the bullet proof or mishimoto scenario. I am waiting for an email from mishimoto and will continue to search. I will post if I find anything or if I get any word back from mishimoto. The price of the bullet proof is 329 and looks just like the one piece performance radiator phot. I am leaning towards them. I have heard excellent things about the mishimoto, but will see what I can get it for. They have it listed on their site for 600, I can get it on ebay for 450. I have heard of others getting them shipped for 400.

I installed my Mishimoto radiator and I/C last April, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It was definitely an easy install, plus it comes with a lifetime warranty. If you haven't seen it, check out my install thread. Hope this helps!
