Best radiator to get?

I have an 03 Ford Excursion with 6.0l. I am looking for a new radiator and have narrowed it down to Mishimoto or Bulletproof. Does any of the venders on here sell the Bulletproof? Also what did you pay for your Mishimoto?

Get the Mishimoto for $362 and free shipping on ebay. It's the real deal. The BPD is made by another company and sold by BPD.

@kcoyner, I have heard those were fakes. I could see them being faje as the cheapest I found for the Mishimoto was $684. The Bulletproof is $351 but is out of stock.

Fyi The bpd diesel one states that it does not have extra cooling capacity over Oem so basically same rad with aluminum tanks and outlets.

@borski4, I have heard that as well. Im not really looking for more flow just need the aluminum tanks. I broke my coolant return line when installing my cooler filter.

I dont want to pay double the price for the Mishimoto but the Bulletproof is not in stock and i need it now. Does anyone know who has the best price on the Mishimoto?

For those of you interested in the Mishimoto. This is the seller I bought mine from. Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator for 6 0L Ford Super Duty Diesel F250 F350 F450 V8 | eBay I am 99.99% sure it's the real deal! Nobody would go through this much trouble for a knock off. The confirmation email comes from Mishimoto: The radiator comes boxes in the familiar Mishimoto branded black box. (I have ordered from Mishimoto in the past and the box is the same!) It's wraped in a plastic wrap with the Mishimoto logo printed all over it: The radiator has the logo stamped in the aluminum cap: It also has the logo painted on the radiator just like the picture. No way making knock offs with this kind of detail would be profitable at this price.

The price goes up or down in $20 increments. Right now there are 8 available. Looking at the seller's other inventory I would say that he's in the business of selling "overstocks" or something similar.
