Mishimoto radiator

I own a 2004 F-350 with the 6.0 and want to purchase a Mishimoto radiator for it. However, looking at the internet site Mishimoto does not offer a radiatr for the 350 and has not responded to either of my email or phone messages for information. It would seem to me that the radiators in both the 250's and 350's would be the same part number. Does anyone have an opinion on this?

Yes they are the same... 250/350/450/550
But there may be some differences with auto or manual trans coolers.

Thanks for the quick information. I assumed they would be the same but wanted to make sure before I purchased one. I have an automatic transmission with the screw in coolant lines not the push in fittings so hopefully that will not pose a problem.

Is your stock one leaking or are you just looking to upgrade it?

Thats correct, they are the same. When you install it you'll have to use the trans line fitting from your stock radiator to get it hooked up.

I wasn't aware that Spearco made radiators?
I do have their intercooler in my truck, it's a quality made part.

Nope. Im just an idiot that spoke too soon!

After doing some research, mishimoto seems to be the best.

My stock radiator is fine but I just want to upgrade. My plan is to tow my 30' trailer down the Baja to Cabo San Lucas to spend a couple of months fishing and golfing then up to La Paz to visit family. I'm also looking at the Innovative Performance Research external oil cooler setup that they have just introduced.

I installed a mishimoto radiator, and didn't see any real noticeable changes in coolant temps while towing. I don't tow very heavy loads, but that's just my experience.
