Many of you may be following our other write-up regarding the development of our intercooler for the 2010–2012 6.7L Cummins. Along with designing and testing an incredibly efficient intercooler, we also worked to improve the engine cooling efficiency by crafting a performance aluminum radiator. A typical enthusiast may be wondering, why would I want to upgrade my radiator? Couldn’t I spend that money on modifications that make my truck faster, louder, and more fun? Possibly, but keep in mind the benefits … Continue Reading ››
Mishimoto joined the diesel world around 16 months ago, and since that time we have been providing unmatched cooling protection and performance for Powerstroke, Cummins, and Duramax engines. Using our knowledge and experience in the development of products for sport compact and European vehicles, our team is able to design, enhance, test, and manufacture a variety of beneficial components for your truck. We already carry a slew of products for Dodge Cummins trucks, including the following:
Time to put some numbers behind the effort our team has put forth on this project! As mentioned in the last post, we would be collecting real-world driving data to analyze the effectiveness of our performance aluminum radiator against the factory unit. To prepare for this, we attached our temperature sensors to both the inlet and outlet of the radiator. This would allow us to analyze the efficiency of the radiator by comparing the reduction in temperature from inlet … Continue Reading ››
Now that the prototype was complete and all dimensions checked out with our drawings, it was time to drop this into a truck to ensure that fitment was spot on with all engine bay components. To give you an idea of the scale, take a look at this unit next to one of our Subaru WRX aluminum radiators.

Time to design a new radiator! Now that we had the factory radiator removed and the engine bay dimensions documented, we needed to determine the individual dimensions of the factory radiator. We set the radiator up on our Romer arm to begin drawing this component in 3D. Check it out!
This tool allows our engineers to capture dimensions in … Continue Reading ››
