aFe Blade Runner or Mishimoto Intercooler???

Anyone have experience with either? Looking to do an intercooler upgrade soon and I've been shopping around. The Mishimoto appears to be about $500 cheaper, on average. Good reviews on their radiators and intercoolers in the Mustang world, just wondering how their diesel products are regarded.

Thanks in advance for any input or reviews!

I really like my AFE. Made a big difference in daily driving and towing. Gave my truck a lot of balls down low even at LBF at 0 and egts never went above 1100* towing 15k lbs though the hills of Texas in 100 degree heat. It's a quality piece. Bought it when one of my favorite online retailers sent me a discount code via email.

I upgraded my intercooler over a year ago . I told the guy at XDP that I wanted the best made.
According to them and the tests made between diff. brands............. AFE is the ONE. It was about $1,400 or so........and like Capt Dong said it makes a world of difference in performance.
I got my truck moderately tuned ,so I might have more CAC than I need, BUT........... Id rather have more than not enough.

Title on hand like always

Our intercooler has bar and plate construction, which is much stronger and can handle much higher boost pressure than stock. It also comes with cast end tanks, whereas the stock intercooler has a plastic cold side. Our intercooler is also a direct fit and installs in under 30 minutes.

Here is a link to our engineering report for more information on the intercooler!
