Default Mishimoto Intercooler.

Anybody have any experience with Mishimoto inter-coolers?

I bought a G-line one for my B2200 Kia FE3 swap farm truck project because it seemed reasonably priced decent construction quality and the size seemed to fit well in the space I'm working with for the truck. The core is 17.5" long 11.75" high and 3" thick. kind of surprised by how sparse the fins are on the inside and virtually no turbulators to get the air hitting the heat transfer surfaces. seems like it would flow well but maybe not transfer heat well. especially compared to the Treadstone core I got for a different project. It's for a street car so it wont be driven on track shooting for maybe 300-350 hp. just wondering if it will do the job well enough or am I going to be disappointed after doing all the fabrication work to make this particular core fit. looks like it might be about the same as a CX-Racing version they make one the same dimensions might even be the same core manufacturer judging by pictures I've found.

I sprung for the Mishimoto 3-row like a sucker and ;so far it's had no issues at all, albeit only having been in the car for a few months .But he first couple of those were in a turbo car in 95-100F ambient temps so that's good enough for me.

I bought mine with the Mishi 21x7x2.5 on a FMII, No issues at that power level (~225whp). Surface area wise Id say you are in the clear. I upgraded to a vibrant as I went full send and have it for sale if you can package and want to avoid the fabwork.
