The key to great engineering is often making the most of what you’re given—using the resources available to you in the most efficient way possible. When we last talked about the 2011-2014 F-150 transmission cooler, we noted that Ford’s engineers left a lot on the table. Behind the grille of the F-150 lays a transmission cooler that’s only using about half of the resources given to it. But we’re not about to let that extra space go to waste. In this post, our engineer will leverage simplicity and creativity to make the most of what the 2011-2014 F-150 has to give.

Picture this. The year is 2023. You’re climbing into your 2016 Q50 on your standard commute to work. It’s year seven with your trusty Infiniti, which has kept you riding in style to just about everywhere and still no complaints. Then again, who could have any gripes with the power-packed VR30DDTT and posh cabin as it brings you from point A to point B?
You do notice, however, in the past few months that it might stumble a bit on startup. It’s not returning the same fuel efficiency as it once did. The once mighty twin-turbo V6 in your Infiniti feels tired and not quite as peppy as it did the day you drove it off the dealer’s

Simplicity is often the key to great engineering. The
same can be said about Ford’s F-150. The F-150 is about function over frills and
getting the job done. Our 2015+ Ford F-150 transmission cooler will follow the
same formula. Our focus will be on one key aspect: use as much of the space
behind the F-150’s grille as possible. As we saw in our first post, the stock
transmission cooler only utilizes about 50% of the available space. To increase
that usage to 100% without adding unnecessary complications is where we'll get
the job done, plain and simple.

The automotive industry is like a man-made animal kingdom. Manufacturers design and build these mechanical beasts for their specific purpose in this petrol-powered jungle. Just like any ecosystem, these vehicles can either peacefully cohabitate or evolve to either evade or run down their competitors. Some live on to become majestic beasts while others go extinct. Thanks to our inherent love for speed, the Corvette has stuck around since its inception and is now on its seventh and pushing an eighth generation. While the Corvette might be an old timer, especially in the realm of sports cars, this spry geezer is still showing these youngsters how it’s done.
The C6 might have gone out with an LS9-powered bang,

One of the hardest parts of any adventure comes before you even leave your house: the waiting that leads up to your inevitable start. Sitting there, watching the minutes tick down until it’s time, is a test of patience. That last minute can feel like it lasts longer than the hours leading up to it. Here at Mishimoto, it feels like we’ve been in the final minute of our 2018+ Jeep Wrangler JL 3.6L catch can project forever. But with this post, we’re counting down those last seconds and moving on.
We installed our prototype catch can kit on our volunteer JL and sent it out into the world to see what it would catch. About

Trying something new can be a daunting, especially when you’re changing something you’ve done well for a long time. In the case of our 2014+ Chevy/GMC K2 transmission cooler, the design of the stock transmission cooler had us stepping off the beaten path in search of the best possible solution.
In our previous posts, we discussed the design of the stock cooler that’s integrated with the A/C condenser and how we would be adding an external cooler to supplement it. We had our core

As the weather here in Delaware continues to get colder,
I’ve resigned myself to only leaving the house to avoid starvation or getting
fired (and it’s not even really cold here). As much as I hate the cold, I’m
reminded every morning that my turbocharged car loves it. The only thing better
than cold, dense air for a turbocharged engine is more cold, dense air. Once
the winter months turn into spring and summer, more of us will be out enjoying
the warm air, but your 2.0T Jeep JL will be longing for the cold of winter. At
Mishimoto, we’ve been working to give your Jeep the cool air it needs to
perform its best all year long.
