Mishimoto 6.4L Intercooler Testing!

We don't just make products, we put them to the test as well! When our engineers design a new product, it goes through rigorous testing to ensure that our customers are going to receive the highest quality product.

The Ford 6.4L Powerstroke Intercooler is no different. Our intercooler went through intense testing to make sure our intercooler would offer the increase in performance our customers were looking for!

Our Performance Intercooler lowers AITs by 21%, and has a 50% less pressure drop than stock. The all-aluminum construction also offers more efficient heat dissipation, while the bar and plate core ensures strength and reliability. This intercooler, which is 18% thicker and 20% larger in volume than the stock intercooler, is guaranteed to keep your truck cool, and look good doing it!

PLX temperature and pressure sensors were used to obtain our data.



Our Engineering Report shows the hard data, proving that our intercooler was built to perform!

Not only does this intercooler outperform the stock unit, it's also incredibly easy to install! Check out the install video to see for yourself.

Tyler,
My 08 6.4l gets condensation buildup in the bottom of the stock intercooler, when conditions are just right it sucks it up, stumbles and bellows white smoke. Ford put out a TSB for it, which I never bothered with following through on. Does your intercooler cure this? Or is it just something these trucks do? Thanks!

Unfortunately, this is a common issue with these trucks. I read the TSB that Ford put out about this issue, and there doesn't seem to be any permanent solution. Our intercooler does not have any differences in the design to stop this from happening, so I cannot say that our intercooler will cure this issue. Though our intercooler may not stop this concern, it does have many other benefits! Please let me know if you have any other questions, as I would be happy to help.

Thanks,
Tyler

Thanks for the info Tyler! Upgrading the intercooler is on my list of things to do next year.

Wouldn't a CCV for oil and a drain plug on the low end for water fix this issue?

CCV is on the owner but a drain plug you guys could add, I'm adding one to my aFe intercooler soon.

Actually if you guys sold a kit for add-on I would gladly buy it.

I dont believe its caused by crack case condensation. Its all external humidity and temp vs the internal intercooler air temps and humidity. Its basically sweat on the inside of the intercooler. Someone correct me if Im wrong. Ive never had an intercooled vehicle do this until this truck. Its just something about the shape, size, and temps. Maybe a more efficient one like the Mishimoto might cure it. Its extremely hard if not impossible to duplicate in a controlled situation, like a dyno.

My OEM one was caked with oil and water.

I had the white smoke from water this as well.

When I switch to aFe one which it looks about the same as this one it went away and I've check and there's no oil or water in my intercooler yet after 6 months.

We chose not to include a drain plug on the intercooler as it could be a potential failure point. If you would like to install one yourself, it wouldn't be difficult. However, I will pass this info onto our R&D department to let them know there is interest in this option. Please let me know if you have any other comments or suggestions.

Thanks,
Tyler

Hey guys, wanted to let you know that I won't be active on the forums until Monday. I am headed home to Michigan for the holidays. I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving!

In the meantime, check out this picture I snagged of some awesome dyno testing we had going on in the shop! We have a cool video about the testing coming out soon, so keep an eye out!
