Exactly how much larger is the piping we designed? The Mishimoto hot-side design provided the greater increase in volume between the two, coming in at a 51% increase over the stock pipe.

Our mounting bracket lined up, and the hardware properly secured the pipe into place. The … Continue Reading ››
Good news! Our first prototype intercooler pipe kit is complete. We can now evaluate both fitment and functionality on our Fiesta. Let’s take a look at each pipe we created.
