Welcome to a very special update on one of the more unique Camaro parts we’ve got in our R&D arsenal: The Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro Auxiliary Radiators. If you're just joining us now, learn all about the stock auxiliary Camaro radiator in our first post.
Last time, we discussed two possible design options for these heat exchangers, but now I’ve got the word on our final decision. I’ll explain in detail the efforts and testing methodology we employed to come to our decision, but first, let me make an announcement:
Also, … Continue Reading ››
When we left off last time, I teased you a bit with a couple of 3D models representing the possible directions in which we might be taking the Mishimoto Camaro SS auxiliary radiator design. We have continued the discussion among our engineering team and have not yet come to a conclusion on how to proceed. We have, however, taken action to explore both options in greater depth.
We felt that fitment and compatibility with stock radiator ducting is definitely one of this project’s more important considerations, so we wanted … Continue Reading ››
For as long as there have been stories, there have been heroes. Likewise, almost every hero has a sidekick (if he’s lucky, at least). This concept spans a breadth of traditional mediums and relationships: George had Lenny, Aladdin had Abu, Jak had Daxter, and the Fresh Prince had Jazzy Jeff. I think we can all agree that the 2016+ Camaro SS is the hero in this story, but in this chapter, our hero is the cooling system, and it just got one step closer to having TWO awesome sidekicks (What … Continue Reading ››
As I’m sure many of you know, we strive for transparency here at Mishimoto, and we love sharing our development process with all of you. There are many benefits to this, and hearing your feedback ranks highly among them. That said, our search for inspiration is wide-reaching and multidisciplinary. Just recently, I happened upon an interview with Noam Chomsky, renowned thinker and MIT professor, who is quoted as saying: “I like the cold weather. It means you get more work done”.
I think Chomsky missed his calling in the automotive parts industry, because … Continue Reading ››
