Mishimoto Blows Up an Intercooler!

Watch what happens when a stock diesel intercooler tries to keep up with one of our performance aluminum intercoolers! This test proves that Mishimoto intercoolers can handle the pressure, and keep pushing the limits!


Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Thanks,
Tyler Sylvester

awwww, get a new compressor!!! hahahaha

In comparison to real life, what kind of pressures does that intercooler see in the truck.
I assume it will relate to the turbo set up.

A stock 6.0L Powerstroke will see around 20-30psi, but depending on how the truck is built, they can see much higher. We have customers running our intercooler on their 6.0L, running over 100psi!

But the strength of our intercoolers is just one of the many reasons to purchase one. Our intercoolers also provide lower air intake temps, reduced pressure loss, and more efficient heat dissipation. Plus, all of our products come with a lifetime warranty! These are all benefits that can be seen from installing one of our intercoolers onto your truck. If you want to see this data, check out our engineering reports on our website. They can be found on the product pages for these intercoolers!

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Tyler

I'm just a simple hillbilly but my understanding is boost is just a measure of restriction. I would be more interested in seeing cfm comparison over a psi comparison. To me this doesn't prove much benefit to 99.9% of diesel owners. I'll agree plastic end tanks are a poor design but come on.

Hi Brett,

This test was intended purely as a stress test to show the advantages of our cast aluminum end tanks over plastic end tanks. The strength of our intercoolers isn't the only reason to purchase one. Our intercoolers provide lower air intake temps, reduced pressure loss, and more efficient heat dissipation. Plus, all of our products come with a lifetime warranty! These are all benefits that can be seen even on a stock truck.

We have engineering reports on our website which show this information if you are interested in a more detailed explanation of the performance gains! Here is a link to the 6.0L Powerstroke Intercooler engineering report.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Tyler
