Personally, I am a huge Nissan fan, but I try not to be too biased when it comes to working on Nissan projects. I do, however, remember how excited I was when the new Titan development vehicle first rolled into our headquarters in all its glory. I found myself pricing options on the Internet and weighing my student loan debt with the prospect of a shiny new toy. So with a love like this, it makes sense to protect it. When developing products, we consider several factors. We evaluate possible improvements to the factory setup of a vehicle, to make more … Continue Reading ››
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 ››
Mishimoto has been involved in the heat exchanger business for quite some time. Our team has produced many optimal aftermarket cooling solutions for vehicles new and old. We are finding now that OE heat exchangers have been improving substantially. This is occurring because vehicle curb weights have risen, and the horsepower war has continued to produce increasingly massive power output numbers. Now, this isn’t to say there isn’t room for improvement. Stock cooling systems are typically adequate for a stock vehicle in street-driving conditions and in some instances, light track driving. Once owners begin adding sticky tires for longer-duration lapping, stock … Continue Reading ››
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.
