Everyday Hercules – Aluminum Radiator R&D, Part 1: Stock Review

Like the Roman hero Hercules, the 2015+ F-150 is capable of other-worldly feats. From the street to the jobsite, and even the dunes or the track, there’s little that the F-150 can’t conquer. With three available engines producing over 350 lb. ft. of torque, the 2015+ F-150 could probably stop the rotation of the earth. Even with all that power, many of the F-150’s on the road will never see Moab or drag a 1,000 lb. log up a mountain. But that doesn’t mean your F-150 shouldn’t be your everyday Hercules.

Owning an F-150 … Continue Reading ››

Improved Induction – Silicone Induction Hose R&D, Part 1: Stock Review

Many would question the motives behind someone who purchases a four-cylinder turbo of what has come to be a staple of the American muscle culture. Personally, I get it. I’m one for combining performance without having to sacrifice fuel economy or aggressive styling. On top of that, turbo engines open a whole new world for modification, and one of the first steps for most is to increase the airflow to the turbo. The engineers at Chevy had to make a trade-off, however, when it came to designing the stock induction hose for the 2.0T Camaro. I’m sure they would prefer … Continue Reading ››

Eliminating the Eyesore – Expansion Tank R&D, Part 4: Final Form

They say that good things come to those who wait, and we’d certainly say that’s the case with the Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro expansion tank. Note that I did not specify “SS” here. This tank also fits on the 2.0T, but we haven’t gotten a change to test it out on a V6 model yet, though it should fit. If any V6 owners are local to the Philadelphia area and want to come on by for a test fit so that we can be 100% sure, please reach out!

We’ve tested the tank on both of our Camaros, … Continue Reading ››

American Workhorse – Part 2: Putting Innovation to the Test

Welcome to the second blog post detailing the development of the Mishimoto 6.4L Powerstroke upper radiator support bar. Last time, we looked at why front-end chassis flex in the 6.4 Super Duty has the potential to exceed a safe magnitude, using our advanced American architecture as a comparison. We learned that too much flex spells possible consequences, so we made it our goal to stiffen things up. But how did we do it?

We did it in the most American way possible – through innovation.

The Mishimoto 6.4 not only serves … <a href=Continue Reading ››

All About Options – Silicone Radiator Hose Kit, Pictures and Pre-sale!

2017 is going to be the year of the  TurboChevy for Mishimoto. We have several parts for our 2016 Camaro 2.0T scheduled to release in the coming months. I’ll start you off with one of the very first items we are about to release for the new year – our new Silicone Radiator Hose Kit.

As the title states, we are making sure that everyone with a turbocharged, LTG equipped Chevy Camaro has options when it comes to cooling, and those options must look good. We don’t take cooling lightly here at Mishimoto. After all, that is what we have built … Continue Reading ››
