Shift Change – Automatic Transmission Cooler R&D, Part 1 – Stock Review and Design Plans

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 ››

Building Endurance – Performance Radiator Kit R&D, Part 3 – Auxiliary Radiator Design Plans

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.

Building Endurance – Performance Radiator Kit R&D, Part 2 – Primary Radiator Design Plans

The Toyota Supra is essentially the definition of automotive athleticism. It’s compact, agile, makes all of the right sounds, and the B58 is more than willing to give you a sharp shove back into the driver’s seat at a moment’s notice.  Though BMW/Toyota designed the Supra to be a top performer, even the most well-trained athletes can still succumb to the brutal heat. We here at Mishimoto already have the plans to keep the Supra running at peak performance.

If you remember back to our first post, and if you saw the sneak preview … Continue Reading ››

Speed Evolved – Performance Intake R&D, Part 3 – Production Sample

The evolutionary process happens in stages. We humans didn’t jump to the top of the intellectual food chain overnight. We had to traverse that process through plenty of less advanced stages of ourselves. Now, look at us. Ogling sports cars and figuring out the best ways to improve on them.

Our intake has evolved in stages as well, and we’re now at what is essentially the final stage. No, we don’t expect that our kit will become sentient and form a species of its … Continue Reading ››

For a Flawless Return – Direct-Fit Catch Can R&D, Part 2 – Design and Test Results

Just about every major launch these days is complemented by some unforeseen bug in the system. It’s just the way of the world, and manufacturers are quick to solve these small hiccups with a recall or a software update. Some bugs aren’t easily remedied with a code revision or swapping for updated parts. For many vehicles, including your A90 Supra, blow-by will be an issue no matter the measures taken by Toyota and BMW to prevent it. When it comes to protecting your intake components, the solution requires a hardware upgrade, and we have that hardware.
