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 ››

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:

Tell Her About Them – Exhaust R&D, Part 3: Axleback Options

Our Mishimoto chefs have been very busy in our R&D kitchen, cooking up some wonderful 2016 Camaro exhaust prototypes with our 3D-modeling CAD software. Using nothing short of the finest ingredients, they have created a suite of 2016 Camaro SS exhaust options that are so delicious, Guy Fieri’s mouth would surely be watering at the sight – though I’m sure he’d be even more tantalized if these were compatible with the first-gen Camaro!

Just the Way You’re Crimped – Exhaust R&D, Part 2: Testing the Crimp Myth

Greetings, Camaro enthusiasts, and welcome to Part 2 of the Mishimoto R&D blog series on our 2016 Camaro SS Exhaust! As you may remember, we took a gander last time at the OEM exhaust, paying special attention to some of the really cool design features that make this system unique. One feature has emerged as a real point of contention and has become so hotly debated, that I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about it on the next CNN Presidential Town Hall. I am referring, of course, to the crimped section of piping near the rear axles.
