EGR cooler options - BPD, Sinister, AFE

I need some advice or opinions on "upgraded" EGR coolers.

BulletProof Diesel ($350) is the long time standard, OEM core with new internals welded in.
Sinister looks to be a copy of BPD ($350), OEM remanufactured.
AFE ($325) says it's all new construction.

All three share the same basic design and so long as there's no manufacturing defects, they should all work about the same. Is there any reason to choose one over the other? Who has seen all three in person and can attest to their quality? Does it matter which I choose at all?

Thanks guys. Peter

Price really isnt a factor because theyre all within $ for me its a no brainer. Bulletproof all the way for no other reason than their awesome service and KNOWING they will stand behind their products.

I'd go with BPD hands down. I have their FICM power supply and if that quality of workmanship is even close to the workmanship they put into their EGR cooler then there isn't anything out there that can touch it. IMHO
