Downpipes are a choke point in many turbocharged vehicles when it comes to exhaust flow. As opposed to naturally aspirated cars, less serious thought needs to go into the size of the exhaust piping. In most cases the system just needs to be bigger in diameter, maximizing what you can within the alotted design space.
The downpipe on the Camaro 2.0T’s LTG engine is a restrictive point in the exhaust system, a conclusion brought about by our testing. The point of emphasis is the rate at which exhaust gases are expelled out of the turbocharger. That flow is very important to … Continue Reading ››
Get a silicone induction hose for your LTG powered Camaro or ATS today:
The quality of the airflow is essential for any vehicle boasting a forced induction system. You would think with a compressor literally sucking volumes of air that it would sort itself out, but that’s not always the case. Turbulence, and the resulting inconsistent airflow, is the enemy. Any sort of change in the airflow can cause pressure differentials and ultimately keep your turbocharged engine from rising to its full potential. As laid out in the Continue Reading ››
Though the winter continues to perpetuate chilly weather and monotonous gloom here on the east coast, the future is looking bright for our Mishimoto 2013+ Cadillac ATS catch can kit. After a nice visit to the local Porsche dealership (yes, you read that correctly), armed with some anomalous 50◦ January sunshine, several delicious sandwiches, and our final ATS prototype catch can kit, we’ve determined that our fitment is just about spot on.
For those of you just catching up with us now (I crack myself up), this ATS kit is largely the same as our Camaro … Continue Reading ››
Happy 2017, people! I hope you all had wonderful experiences throughout the holiday season and you welcomed in the New Year with a glass of something delicious. I know I did! Whatever you had, I’m sure you enjoyed it much more than your Camaro 2.0T enjoys drinking blow-by. So to begin the year on the right foot, we're going to give you the opportunity to pick up a Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro 2.0T Catch Can kit.
In my last post, I gave all of the ATS owners a little love and showed you how we route catch … Continue Reading ››
Hello to all my wonderful Camaro 2.0T and Cadillac ATS owners! In our last update, we made the big reveal of our patent-pending blow-by tap. We drilled down into the details of how we plan on mining that nasty vein of oil vapor out of your LTG and transporting it to a catch can, instead of into your intake manifold.
Today, we’re going to take it back to basics a little bit and look specifically at that whole “transport” element. To go even further back to basics, check out our technical section to see Continue Reading ››
