Cooling is one of the basic needs of any engine, and for a workhorse like the 2011-2019 Ford 6.7L Powerstroke, any failure in the cooling system can be disastrous.

The 6.7L Powerstroke's cooling system is divided into two parts. The primary cooling system cools the engine, engine oil, transmission, and EGR. It also supplies … Continue Reading ››

Building Endurance – Performance Radiator Kit R&D, Part 6 – Testing Results

Endurance is all about the long term. Building endurance in the automotive industry might mean keeping the car on the track for a few more minutes or stretching the same performance over a few extra years. Since the 2020+ Supra finds itself taking up both track and daily driving duties, we wanted to make sure our new radiators cover all the bases in improving the Supra's endurance.

The demand for quality has sharply increased over the years. In the past, overheating sometimes was a … Continue Reading ››

Shift Change – Automatic Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 2 – Production Sample and Testing

It's old news now that the Supra has returned. Back in late 2018, it didn't seem like there could be anything hotter in automotive news media. The Supra returned. What else, mattered? Plenty more mattered, as it turns out, as the heat has since blown over on this subject, and the Supra's are quite literally generating their own heat out on the roads and tracks. As we covered in the first post, heat in your automatic transmission is fine, but too much heat is not good. Luckily, we've already devised a solution to keep the Supra shifting … Continue Reading ››

Cooling a Cult Icon – Radiator R&D, Part 2: Design, Prototype, Production

When we last talked about our 2007-2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser performance radiator, we had just removed the stock radiator. Our engineer, Ye, used our 3D scanner to make a digital model of it. In this post, we’ll turn that digital model into a prototype, and if all goes to plan, we’ll turn that prototype into a full production sample.

The first step in the process was to make a prototype radiator, test fit it on the vehicle, and ensure our design would fit. But … Continue Reading ››

Heritage Revamped – Baffled Oil Catch Can Kit R&D, Part 2 – Prototyping

Heritage isn't something that pops up overnight. It's a long, arduous process that can take decades to develop fully. Specifically speaking, it takes time to be proven in the automotive world and compile a pedigree as lengthy as the Corvette. Since the 1950s, Chevy has put in the work and continues to push the 'Vette's limits, pushing it into near supercar territory. All that hard work, however, could be snubbed by some carbon crusted intake valves. So, while the Corvette works on proving itself in the mid-engine realm, we'll continue to prove ourselves by protecting its engine with … Continue Reading ››
