Improved Induction – Silicone Induction Hose R&D, Part 1: Stock Review

Many would question the motives behind someone who purchases a four-cylinder turbo of what has come to be a staple of the American muscle culture. Personally, I get it. I’m one for combining performance without having to sacrifice fuel economy or aggressive styling. On top of that, turbo engines open a whole new world for modification, and one of the first steps for most is to increase the airflow to the turbo. The engineers at Chevy had to make a trade-off, however, when it came to designing the stock induction hose for the 2.0T Camaro. I’m sure they would prefer … Continue Reading ››

Makin’ Our Camaro Purr – Catback R&D, Part 2: Turning Heads

Our recently released catch can for this 2016+ Chevy Camaro 2.0T needed a part two to our “The Making Of” (TMO) video series for the project, and I was tasked with directing it. I wanted to take our Camaro home (Washington D.C.) for the weekend to put some miles on it so our kit would catch real world content inside of the catch can to show in the video. It just so happens that we had a full cat-back exhaust … Continue Reading ››

Hot and Cold – Intercooler Pipes R&D, Part 2: Almost There

We have a lot of advanced equipment at our disposal that would make a design for an upgraded intercooler pipe kit for this 2016+ Chevy Camaro 2.0T superior over stock in many ways. We aren’t only aiming for these pipes to have spot-on fitment. It’s crucial to think about every design detail and consider how you can keep these pipes with you throughout your quest for more power without having to do anything to them. This means incorporating design features that can support even more modifications – whether you plan to use them or not. I’ll take you through how … Continue Reading ››

Getting Into The Thick of It – Intercooler R&D, Part 2: The Core Concept

I’ve always wondered if it’s a coincidence that the start of tax-return season is timed so conveniently with the startup of the race season for us gearheads. How is it that our hard-earned money withheld from our wages the previous year is graciously beset upon our bank accounts, but then immediately drawn right back out to fund the rest of the car parts we all want? It’s something I succumb to almost every year, with 2017 not excluded, and I know I won’t be alone. There are just some things we all need for our cars to reach that next … Continue Reading ››

Chevrolet Camaro Performance Intake Kit PreSale

  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 ››
