With our first EcoBoost downpipe prototype complete and fitting on the EB perfectly, it was time to perform some product testing. We wanted to do so for two reasons. First, we wanted to see the impact on power output with a tune, our intake, and this new downpipe we developed. We have been watching the progress of the EB HP/TQ race on the forums, and we wanted to see what kind of numbers our car could put … Continue Reading ››
It is quite an exciting week here at Mishimoto. Yes, that’s right … our first prototypes of the Mustang EcoBoost downpipe assemblies have arrived and are ready for test fitting and some road testing! Our extensive 3D-modeling design work has paid off with some very nice downpipe prototype pieces. No more delay, on to the images!

Our first prototypes include both a catted downpipe and a catless downpipe. Each unit features a two-piece design for … Continue Reading ››
It has been awhile since our last update on the Mishimoto downpipe, however I assure you it was worth the wait. We have had our engineers tackling a ton of awesome new products for the EB, this exhaust system included. We left off with an evaluation of the stock downpipe. Once that was complete we set out to … Continue Reading ››
Opening up the exhaust on a turbocharged vehicle is a great first modification that can make a big impact on drivability, vehicle sound, and driver enjoyment. Typically, a vehicle will see improvements in horsepower and massive gains in torque output. Emissions and sound requirements normally restrict the size and efficiency of stock exhaust systems, which explains why big gains result from enlarging the piping and eliminating or reducing restrictions within the piping.
For this project, we will focus … Continue Reading ››
