We have some updates for our 2015 Mustang GT intake project! Our engineering team has been diligently working on a functional prototype so we can start getting some testing results. It’s full steam ahead with our plan for this intake, which includes a cool design for a fully enclosed airbox, keeping the stock tune, and of course, gaining more power! Let’s briefly examine what we have so far starting with the airbox, shown below.
In our design for the intake airbox, check out how … Continue Reading ››
Here at Mishimoto we’re always developing new products, with a great deal of them focused on enhancing the cooling systems of everything from old-school Datsun 240s to the latest Ford F-series diesel. Occasionally we revisit an existing product to see if we can give our fellow enthusiasts an even better solution for their performance cooling needs. A few years after we … Continue Reading ››
With one round of successful development and data collection complete, our engineers set out to improve upon the first design. After gathering airflow data for different bumper locations, they decided to move the cooler to the lower bumper opening as opposed to the grille area. Instead of modifying the existing brackets, our team developed a new bracket that would suspend the cooler and attach directly to the bumper support. This new bracket not only brought the cooler to … Continue Reading ››
With our test vehicle in the shop, our team set to work planning our attack on this Mustang. Our primary goal was to achieve significant temperature decreases. We got this beast in the air and inspected our challenges with the oil sandwich plate location. Our standard and thermostatic sandwich plates use either a ¾-16 or M20 sandwich plate adapter. This component secures the sandwich plate between the block and the oil filter.

There is so much to say about the Ford Mustang and its legendary history as a high-performance, tire-melting pony car. Ford has been constantly improving the chassis, engine, and body since the 1960s (minus a lapse in the mid-1970s … we forgive you, Ford), and the most recent vehicle is nothing short of fantastic. The Coyote 5.0L engine produces substantial power and is finding its way into a variety of vehicles as a great engine swap candidate. These … Continue Reading ››
