Spectra Premium or CSF radiators?

Anyone have any experience with these radiators in your 6.4's?

Bump!

Still waiting on the Alradco unit, might try out a CSF in the mean time, anyone tried one yet?

EDIT: Looks like even CSF is up to changing the design, going to send them an email.

Part # 3536, going to be superseded by 3642 once 3536 are all sold, going to email them and see if there are any changes they can note for us.

Mishimoto.... take note... less than 45 minutes for TWO responses from CSF, THAT is customer service. No bull****, no run around, no stories, just answers.

Anyways, 3642 includes the factory venturi T upgrade, radiator itself is the same. I ordered my distributors last 3536 and should be here for the end of the week. I can give you some comparison pictures of it vs. the VistaPro that is coming out, and I have pictures of the Vista vs the stock.

Well I just installed two Vista Pro radiators. The first one had a hairline crack shipped from the factory and the second one leaked 2 days later after installation. Ive been dealing with this for about a month now, and yet my truck sits in the garage with no radiator. IMHO there radiators are junk.

Now that sucks, ****ty deal man. UPS says CSF will be here tomorrow, I'll snap some pictures for you right off the bat and I should have it installed Saturday so we'll know if its good then.

Just go Alradco, if you can wait another few weeks he will be shipping them soon and it will be well worth it for the troubles you've had.

BurTronn, getting quick hey haha! I know PS.org thinks I'm out for blood with Mishimoto, they have done it themselves and I wouldn't even place an order if you think you've had fun with VistaPro so far, here is another SHOPS posting of their Mishi fun, I am not alone in this battle...

Well I installed my Venturi Tee before installing the Vista's and they still developed leaks. So any thoughts on this?
