Alright, it is finally time to see how our engineering team did with the development of this product! First, we measured the physical properties of the Mishimoto radiator compared to the factory radiator. Our first chart highlights the most common selling feature of a performance radiator: core thickness.
We squeezed out as much additional core thickness as possible without … Continue Reading ››
Time to install our prototype radiator into a test vehicle to make sure that it fits perfectly. Luckily, we were able to check fitment on the same donor vehicle we used for our last round of testing. Once the truck rolled into the shop, we quickly installed our prototype radiator shown at the end of our last post. Check out a few shots taken during the installation process!

Now that we had our project objectives outlined, we could bring in a vehicle to begin the first stage of product development. After checking with our local contacts, we were able to locate the 2010 6.7L you see below!
A big thank you to the owner of this truck! Take a look under the hood. This truck was equipped with some … Continue Reading ››
Many of you may be following our other write-up regarding the development of our intercooler for the 2010–2012 6.7L Cummins. Along with designing and testing an incredibly efficient intercooler, we also worked to improve the engine cooling efficiency by crafting a performance aluminum radiator. A typical enthusiast may be wondering, why would I want to upgrade my radiator? Couldn’t I spend that money on modifications that make my truck faster, louder, and more fun? Possibly, but keep in mind the benefits … Continue Reading ››
