There are 7 billion people on Earth driving over 1 billion cars. Some of those cars were made for people who spend their Saturdays shopping for houseplants and whose idea of speed is doing 45mph in a 40mph zone. Some of them were made for the passengers of the world, whose perfect car is a silent butler. Then there are the cars made for the select few. For those with fuel in their veins and tire smoke in their lungs. For drivers.
Design work and refinement continue with our 2016 Camaro expansion tank. To verify fitment within the constraints of the engine bay, we’ve 3D printed a prototype in plastic to install on our test vehicle.
Check out a few shots of this prototype installed!
The image above shows the tank with a sight tube instead of a sight glass, which we used on our previous 3D models. We are experimenting with both designs to determine which is … Continue Reading ››
We have undertaken an intriguing project. The stock intake design for this 2016 Camaro SS is quite unique and working to increase performance has been a challenge, but here at Mishimoto, we welcome challenges! In the previous post, we went through the different iterations our Engineering Team had created, and we designed a prototype for testing. More testing was needed, however, before we could achieve the level of performance we wanted from this design. We will go through a detailed analysis of our final numbers for this Camaro cold-air intake project.
Check out the seventh segment of the Mishimoto 2016 Camaro SS video review series! In this video we provide a neat look at some of the unique features on the rear suspension of the ’16.
Our next video will include details about the braking system of our SS.

While we were deep in development of various new components for the 2016 Camaro, we received numerous requests for a replacement for the coolant expansion tank. While an upgrade here won’t net any horsepower gains or drop fluid temperatures, a replacement tank can certainly improve the appearance of your engine bay.
Since we are experts in producing innovative aluminum replacement expansion tanks, we decided to tackle the Camaro unit as one of our new projects.
