A More Durable Degas. Mishimoto’s Ford Powerstroke 6.0L Aluminum Degas Bottle R&D, Part 3: 3D-Printed Prototypes

With a rough 3D model in place, we started constructing our 3D-printed prototypes to finalize our 6.0L degas bottle design and to refine any areas where adjustments are needed. Due to the large size of this degas unit, we printed the bottle in multiple sections and then attached each portion together. Below is a look at our first 3D print fitted into place on our 6.0L.

A More Durable Degas. Ford Powerstroke 6.0L Aluminum Degas Bottle R&D, Part 1: Factory Bottle Evaluation

We’re back for some new 6.0L product development! It has been a few months since the release of our recent intake elbow and thermostat housing, and our team is itching to start a new project on our 6.0L Powerstroke shop truck. This time, we’re aiming to create an aluminum degas bottle that would provide additional cooling system reliability. Within the past year, we’ve increased our focus on development of aluminum expansion tanks, and we’ve brought to market some unique tanks that provide improved durability and style. One of our recent projects was a tank for the 2015+ Ford Mustang, which features … Continue Reading ››
