We are now one step closer to completing this induction project! The bulk of our testing is just about finished and we have gotten some awesome results. One of our biggest objectives was to increase the internal volume over the stock intake. With more air surging through the hose, the potential for improved power output is increased as well.

Howdy folks, and welcome to the second installment of Mishimoto's Engineering Blog on the development of our upcoming 2015+ F-150 EcoBoost intercooler. In our first post, we examined the factory intercooler on this truck and took a look at some of its unique features, but since then, we have made a ton of headway on developing our improved version. To learn more about how the system functions, check out that first F-150 EcoBoost intercooler post.
When we first began on this project, we were choosing between a couple of possible design philosophies that Jason, the project engineer, had conceived. Each had its benefits and drawbacks, but rather than trying to read minds, we decided to reach out to all of you to find out what you wanted for the ideal F-150 EcoBoost intercooler.

Interested in Purchasing our BRZ/FR-S Fan Shroud Kit in Black? Our discounted Pre-Sale is already underway!
Greetings, padawans. I'm here again with a sequel to our first post on the black BRZ fan shroud. This will be a quick one, I promise, but I wanted to update you all with the latest on this cool looking piece.
Share with you, I must, some photos of the Mishimoto BRZ fan shroud in black. Jason the Engineer, a proud Toyobaru owner himself, was nice enough to loan us his vehicle so that we could install this shroud and bring his car to the better side of the force. Once we got the tractor beam warmed up,

A Sharper Knife
When early man wanted?to cut something, he beat two rocks together until one of them was vaguely pointy and sharp. I imagine there were probably a lot of smashed thumbs and whatever the equivalent of cursing was to a caveman.? Over thousands of years, humans developed new ways of cutting materials (and themselves). The Egyptians created copper saws, early Europeans learned how to harden iron, and the advent of steel led to stronger, more efficient saws.? Then, in the 1880s, George Clemson perfected the hacksaw, and bike thieves all over the world rejoiced.

Last time, we took a look at the unique design of the Ford 6.7 secondary Super Duty radiator and its accompanying thermostats. Our last post was only about two weeks ago, but I come bearing some good news - plus, great things come in twos.
Why does my primary rad need a companion?
As a recap, this heat exchanger, found in 2011+ Ford Super Duty trucks, works as an integral part of a mostly independent secondary cooling system that manages many of the truck's auxiliary cooling needs, including those of the liquid-to-liquid charge air cooler. Cooling these engine components more efficiently should not only prolong their useful lives, but also may make for some nice performance benefits if coupled with a tune - who doesn't love colder charge air?
The secondary system allows the primary radiator to more exclusively and efficiently cool the torquey Power Stroke motors found

The RS has gotten a lot of attention the past few weeks, especially with the ball in our court. Need I remind you of our awesome stock dyno clip?
But somethin's-a-brewin with one of our most recent projects, the performance intake we are developing for this hot hatch. We mentioned earlier that the development of this intake kit is not completely uncharted territory, considering that we made one for the 2013-2014 Focus ST. However, as we dived further into this project, we uncovered the true complexities of this design compared with our ST intake kit.

Setting the Scene"
The early summer sun hangs low and cool against the rolling American meadows, lazily beginning to cast its gaze over another serene, newborn morning. Delicate but unwavering, it brings the landscape to life, painting the valley in amber shades so warm they can practically be felt. The depth and flowing continuity in these endless fields, draped in their clementine pallet, remains mostly unbroken but for a neat, dark ribbon of tarmac, slicing back and forth as if laid down by the hawk gliding soundlessly above.
Like an incoming storm, an imposing, thunderous tone bellows distantly above the hills, cutting through the picturesque still-life and growing louder as it echoes, following the zig-zagging vein of asphalt, ever-aggressively surging forward and inhaling the scene's serenity only to expel it rearward in an affront to all things understated. Contrasting though it may seem, the proprietor

Testing is complete! Although we would still like to be cruising through twisty back roads logging R&D miles, it is time to bring the Focus RS back to the stables to examine our catch can. When we test our catch cans, we try to put a wide variety of miles on the car to best replicate normal driving situations. We send one of our engineers out into the wild to put our development vehicle through its paces and ensure our products are functioning as designed.
Blow-by Meets it's Match
Although our compact baffled oil catch can has been tried and tested numerous times, we still want to put it through the ringer to ensure that it functions just as nicely on every application. Just like our

There's nothing quite like hearing the roar of an engine mixed with the whir of rollers spinning under your wheels, all while you watch the line on the graph climb. Running a powerful car on a dynamometer (dyno) is the epitome of instant gratification for gear-heads. Here at Mishimoto, we use our dynos on a daily basis. From all-wheel-drive (AWD) hatchbacks, like the Ford Focus RS, to the high-horsepower, rear-wheel-drive Chevrolet Camaro SS, and even trucks like the Nissan Titan XD. Almost every vehicle we bring in finds itself strapped (or bolted) down to a dyno at one point or another.
