Why a Catch Can?
Catch cans are used only for turbocharged vehicles, right? This is a question we hear all the time. Yes, a turbocharged vehicle is more likely to produce greater blow-by, resulting in a more prominent collection of debris in the intake manifold and tract. That being said, any engine is certainly susceptible to oil and fuel collection due to the use of PCV and CCV systems, which improve engine efficiency and … Continue Reading ››
Prototype 3D Design
Now that we outlined our project goals and had all the test data from the factory intercooler, our engineers were ready to design a prototype intercooler. Using dimensional data from a rendering of the truck as well as the actual measurements we took from the test vehicle and factory intercooler, our team was able to create a very nice looking prototype. Check out a couple renderings of the design!

Alright, it is finally time to see how our engineering team did with the development of this product! First, we measured the physical properties of the Mishimoto radiator compared to the factory radiator. Our first chart highlights the most common selling feature of a performance radiator: core thickness.
We squeezed out as much additional core thickness as possible without … Continue Reading ››
Time to see how efficient our cooler design is! We would be pulling our test truck onto our Dynojet to collect the data needed to evaluate the intercooler fully. Check out the conditions of our testing procedure below!
Testing ConditionsVehicle: 2010 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins, Automatic Transmission, Performance Air Intake, Exhaust Modifications, Tune
Ambient Temperature: 70°F–76°F
Sensors: PLX Devices with Temperature sensors on both the intercooler inlet and outlet
Process: 6th-gear pulls from 1,800 rpm to 3,200 rpm, … Continue Reading ››
