Stranger Danger – Baffled Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 3: Finishing Touches

The prototype has been on our loaner GT for the past few months, working as it should and catching a nice amount of blow-by. The previous updates, covered how we used innovative tech to design and create the bracket, and the planned routing for the lines. Significant progress has been made since then, as the designs have taken a cleaner physical form.

Stranger Danger – Baffled Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 2: A Canned ‘Stang

Our engineer has advanced engineering tools at his disposal. Arguably, one of the coolest in our facility’s arsenal is our scanning device. This high-tech piece of equipment allows our engineer to scan anything in 3D space into a computer file. The file is then uploaded to a computer so the engineer can design whatever they want within the 3D space they scanned. The fine-tuned hands-on engineering element is still there, it’s just done a lot faster and just as accurate with this machine.  We call this contraption the Faro Design ScanArm and we have a full, detailed writeup on how … Continue Reading ››

Stranger Danger – Baffled Oil Catch Can R&D, Part 1 – Design Plans

Our engineers at Mishimoto are no strangers to the dangers of oil blow by. We have well-documented evidence that this is still a common threat to most modern direct injected vehicles. For those of you that don’t know, blow-by is a byproduct of compression and combustion. Blow-by is created when oil and fuel vapors push past the piston rings and into the crankcase during compression. To keep the crankcase depressurized from this oil and fuel, there needs to be some sort of venting. This is accomplished by routing this blow-by through the intake tract and right back into the cylinder … Continue Reading ››

The Mustang GT Intake R&D, Part 3: Data Crunch

It may seem that we have been dormant on this project, but trust me, the activity around this 2015 Mustang GT intake could not be more alive! In this update, I’ll outline the results of the extensive R&D we put this prototype through. Our Mustang’s V8 Coyote motor has spent a lot of time running with this our prototype intake, and we wanted to document the many steps along the way of this research. Our engineers believe they have tweaked this product to its full potential. So let’s dive right in! The GT looks … <a href=Continue Reading ››

Upgrading Induction – Induction Hose R&D, Part 2: From Concept to Reality

We are now one step closer to completing this induction project! The bulk of our testing is just about finished and we have gotten some awesome results. One of our biggest objectives was to increase the internal volume over the stock intake. With more air surging through the hose, the potential for improved power output is increased as well.
