When we began work on our 2016+ Miata washer fluid reservoir, our primary goal was to improve the aesthetics; we designed the tank to look killer, make your engine bay a little cleaner, and we also reduced the volume of the reservoir, saving a few pounds versus stock if you’re comparing a full Mishimoto tank to a full stock tank.
One of the major benefits of sharing our R&D process among enthusiast communities is the opportunity to learn even more about what we can do to make the best possible product. Once I revealed our reservoir to … Continue Reading ››
At Mishimoto, we know how passionate the enthusiast community is about the fact that Miata Is Always The Answer, and we share that passion!
But by the same logic, we also feel strongly that Washer-fluid Always Sloshes Heavily Everywhere, Rendering FR-layout Legends Unnecessarily In-Direct. Always up for a way to improve on an already wonderful car, we are here to change that by bringing you a 2016+ ND Miata windshield washer fluid reservoir that embodies the true spirit of the car not only by being attractive, … Continue Reading ››
As we finally round the end of the long and arduous testing and data collection process, it’s time to test the fitment of the final prototype to ensure there are no issues before we kick off full-scale production. A lot of effort has gone into designing and engineering this kit, and it has been rewarding to see this project finally come together.
There were some minor changes and cool feature additions that will make this kit unique. Take a look at some images below.
After we pieced together … Continue Reading ››
We finally have an update for the Miata intake project!
With our prototype now in working order, we were finally able to hook up our ND Miata to our dynamometerand get some pulls underway. At this point in the process, we knew we’d want to play around with some other design ideas while the car was hooked up to the Dynapack. AFRs, power output, and sound clips were all on the agenda for the evaluation of this prototype system.
Our idle warmup provided a nice baseline test to evaluate the benefit of the stock liquid-to-liquid oil cooler. From what we saw in the conditions of our first test, warmup is not greatly affected by this component. In this second portion of product testing, we will be evaluating the impact of this heat exchanger on cooling performance. More importantly, we will be evaluating the cooling benefits of our liquid-to-air cooler.
