The BRZ/FR-S is one of the hottest cars to hit the track in the past few years, and the Mishimoto engineers decided to do what they do best: cool it down. Naturally, we would be developing a performance aluminum radiator and silicone hose kit. Additionally we ended up with a killer direct-fit oil cooler kit, some very slick oil caps, and a low-temperature thermostat. As you may have seen in our other build-log, we are also … Continue Reading ››
We know you've been dying to know how we finish up creating a cold-air intake, and today is the day you can breathe a sigh of relief. We are finally at the last stage of R&D! After constructing a final prototype we were prepared to test fitment and ensure that power output and AFR readings remained unchanged. Check out our final prototype components!

Welcome back! It's test-time at Mishimoto, and we're going to put our dyno through a workout to shed those pounds it put on over the winter. In our previous post we reported on the development of prototypes for our intake pipe, filter location, and mass air flow (MAF) housing. We decided it would be beneficial to test the effects of various MAF housing sizes on … Continue Reading ››
With a general idea of our plans for this product, we set about removing all the necessary components so we could begin fabrication. Steve, one of our bright engineers, would be taking the helm for this particular project, with others lending a hand throughout the process when needed.
