For a recap on why you might want to remove blow-by from your engine, check out our technical article ALL about the nasty stuff.

Tell Her About Them – Exhaust R&D, Part 3: Axleback Options

Our Mishimoto chefs have been very busy in our R&D kitchen, cooking up some wonderful 2016 Camaro exhaust prototypes with our 3D-modeling CAD software. Using nothing short of the finest ingredients, they have created a suite of 2016 Camaro SS exhaust options that are so delicious, Guy Fieri’s mouth would surely be watering at the sight – though I’m sure he’d be even more tantalized if these were compatible with the first-gen Camaro!

She’s My Turbo Lover – Mishimoto’s New 2016 Camaro 2.0T Engineering Vehicle

One of the best parts about a small, dynamic company like Mishimoto is that there is never a dull moment around our R&D facility. Change happens frequently, and no two days are the same.
