When it comes to keeping the Supra cool, it's a team effort. True, the primary radiator is the team captain, but if you recall from our first post, the cooling strategy for the B58 means every component is a key player. To make sure the entire team plays well together when you put the hammer down, we gave the same special attention to the auxiliary radiators. Our production samples are in, so let's take a look at the new design.
When it comes to athletes, it's all about continuous improvement. Tireless training, coupled with the latest gear, ensure that athletes stay on top of their game. When it comes to the petrol-powered athlete that is the A90 Supra, the Mishimoto primary radiator is essentially a combination of the two, building the car's endurance with a shiny new piece of gear. Before we dive into how the new radiator performs though, let's take a look at our primary radiator production sample.
It's hard not to be a showoff behind the wheel of the A90 Supra, and we can't exactly blame you either. The car begs to be thrashed, and resisting the exhaust pops is futile. The namesake is one that demands attention (ISSAT A SUPRA?!), all wrapped up in a sleek, not exactly subtle body design. The fact is, the Supra is showy, and that's fine. We're just as eager to be just as showy with our new means of reducing the intercooler temperatures in the form of a performance heat exchanger. So, rather than getting existential about the … Continue Reading ››
There's just something special about sitting basically on the pavement in your sports coupe, gear lever in one hand, rev-matching 100% of the time simply because you have the option. For us automotive purists, that is the dream, which is why it seems almost blasphemous to resurrect one of the most legendary names in the sports car segment without the opportunity for us to row through the gears manually.
In the A90 Supra, Toyota and BMW decided that we humans wouldn't be able to manually shift as efficiently as the Supra needed so that … Continue Reading ››
Team: a group of persons associated in work or activity, striving for a common goal. Yes, the auxiliary coolers on the 2020+ Toyota Supra aren’t what you’d consider being “persons,” but the sentiment remains. Keeping the B58 operating within temperature is a group effort, and all members, no matter how small, do their part. These auxiliary radiators play an essential role in the cooling process at each end of the spectrum, so it’ only makes sense that they would also receive a similar overhaul to our primary radiator.
