  It certainly has been no picnic to get to this point. However, working on this unique, factory-turbocharged application from Chevy has brought to light the importance of the type of testing we do for our intake projects. We’ve gone through many configurations, spent countless design hours and logged hundreds of miles of road testing. This isn’t overkill at Mishimoto, we deem it a necessity. The amount of time that passed by was no mistake. We spared no R&D … Continue Reading ››

Chevy really decided to make history with this brand-new Camaro. It has the smallest motor ever offered in a Camaro and also marks the first Camaro with a four-cylinder power-plant since the third generation. This is also the first time any Camaro has been offered with a factory-installed turbocharger. To put that in perspective, the last time any Chevy even offered a factory-turbocharged, rear wheel drive vehicle with a manual transmission was back in the 1960’s with the Corvair! My parents weren’t even out of grade school yet! This 2.0L turbocharged LTG Ecotec motor puts out a factory-rated 275hp with 295ft-lbs … Continue Reading ››
