Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 6: Pure, Unadulterated, Awesomeness

The last piece of this puzzle has finally fallen into place. Finishing off our offerings for the 2016+ Chevy Camaro SS exhaust systems lands us here with our Race Axleback. The SS has an unmistakable sound, and it’s a sound we don’t want to stray far away from – we only want to enhance it in the most robust way possible, and I feel that the engineers have done just that. I’ll make this simple – this exhaust is mean. _MG_4196r It’s a mix of a modern sounding V8 with the raspy aggressive tone of … Continue Reading ››

Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 5: Decimating Drone

Usually, the first noticeable change people make to any car is how it sounds. As summer starts to heat up, some of us gearheads are starting to take our unicorns, endless money-pits, kind-of-finished projects, or whatever you call your ride, out of storage, or the garage. It’s the season for nightly meets, hot track days and long cruises, giving you the perfect opportunity to showcase the changes you’ve made to your pride and joy since you put it away for the winter. Whether you replaced your catalytic converter with a high flow version, got a full, larger-diameter exhaust, or custom … Continue Reading ››

Eliminating the Eyesore – Expansion Tank R&D, Part 4: Final Form

They say that good things come to those who wait, and we’d certainly say that’s the case with the Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro expansion tank. Note that I did not specify “SS” here. This tank also fits on the 2.0T, but we haven’t gotten a change to test it out on a V6 model yet, though it should fit. If any V6 owners are local to the Philadelphia area and want to come on by for a test fit so that we can be 100% sure, please reach out!

We’ve tested the tank on both of our Camaros, … Continue Reading ››

Removing the Rubber – Induction Hose R&D, Part 2: 3D Print and Pre-Sale!

Just the other week, we all went to sleep with an extra hour on our hands, and now we rise each morning only to find that the rest of the world has beaten us to the punch. Early-morning sun shines through blinds where only darkness fell at the same hour, merely a couple weeks ago. It’s a bit of a shame that the day’s light departs early in the evening, but there’s something energizing and uplifting about waking up to sunlight.

Mornings like these pair well with a nice breakfast to begin the day. For this reason, … Continue Reading ››

Sounds from an American Muscle Car – Exhaust R&D, Part 4: Sound Check

A Gaggle of Pipes,

Hello everyone! You may remember from our previous 2016 Camaro SS Exhaust post that we have decided to move forward with five different systems for this car. It is my pleasure to let you know that all our Camaro exhaust prototypes have been completed. We’ve been busy testing and re-testing for fitment, sound, durability, and performance – and fun, of course. Our on-road testing process usually begins a little something like this:

Rob, the project manager: “Hey Gardiner, I need you to take the SS home tonight to put some … Continue Reading ››
