Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 6: Pure, Unadulterated, Awesomeness

The last piece of this puzzle has finally fallen into place. Finishing off our offerings for the 2016+ Chevy Camaro SS exhaust systems lands us here with our Race Axleback. The SS has an unmistakable sound, and it’s a sound we don’t want to stray far away from – we only want to enhance it in the most robust way possible, and I feel that the engineers have done just that. I’ll make this simple – this exhaust is mean. _MG_4196r It’s a mix of a modern sounding V8 with the raspy aggressive tone of … Continue Reading ››

Piping Hot – Exhaust R&D, Part 5: Decimating Drone

Usually, the first noticeable change people make to any car is how it sounds. As summer starts to heat up, some of us gearheads are starting to take our unicorns, endless money-pits, kind-of-finished projects, or whatever you call your ride, out of storage, or the garage. It’s the season for nightly meets, hot track days and long cruises, giving you the perfect opportunity to showcase the changes you’ve made to your pride and joy since you put it away for the winter.

Clean Camaro – Catch Can R&D, Part 1: Prototype Design

Success in engineering is rarely the result of one attempt. Our products go through revision after revision before they ever see the light of day (or darkness of your engine bay). This goes for complex products, like oil cooler systems and intercoolers, to seemingly simple catch can brackets. Our engineers must consider every situation that could occur in a vehicle, then design our products to handle them. The development process for our 5th Gen Camaro SS direct-fit oil catch can is no exception to that rule. Success is also rarely the product of one person’s efforts. Teamwork plays a major role … Continue Reading ››

Cooling the American Dream – Radiator R&D, Part 2: Performance Testing

If you grew up working on cars, you’re probably familiar with the clamor that a wrench makes when it hits metal. This sound was once the soundtrack of America, the marching drum of industry. But then came the modern age and that clamor was replaced with the dull thud of plastic. Now, everything is made from plastic. Your computer, your table, your car: plastic. Your Camaro radiator is partly made of plastic, but Mishimoto is changing that.

At Mishimoto, we see ourselves as modern alchemists, turning plastic into gold…well, aluminum really. It’s no secret that aluminum is … Continue Reading ››
