Where to buy Performance Radiator?

I have looked at several dealers and come up empty handed. The only dealer I found selling a Performance radiator for our trucks is Diesel Power which lists for $919.


Does anyone know of another vendor or supplier for this radiator?

I have heard from others that they didn't pay the $919 for theirs and got them cheaper elsewhere.

Thanks guys

Cody

Beefier crimps and metal on the end tanks. Mishimoto was working on a solid 6.4 radiator but I was told it was going to be done 6 months ago, stopped asking after I bought the Vista Pro and haven't seen any releases for it yet.

Enjoy horrible service, sub-par quality and made in China product? Mishimoto is your one stop shop!

Also i think bulletproof diesel is supposed to be working on a radiator also. If i had to buy one now tho i would go with vista pro.

BPD is looking into it like they did with the 6.0 but they said it's a big radiator and complicated compared to the 6.0

so I don't think they even have a release date in mind

I know this because last month when picking up my 6.0 unit I mentioned to them "Ya think you would have one for the 6.4 God knows they could use it LOL

I have taken your opinions and ordered a new vista pro radiator and both updated radiator hoses from rock auto with a discount code. Now all I need is some ELC coolant. I'm going to hold off on the thermostats for now since my truck still has lower miles.

I think you made a smart choice. Make sure when you get ELC coolant that it has the EC-1 rating.

When i got mine i had to order it from napa. They didnt have any in stock. I went with peak final charge. Any EC-1 coolant will work.
