American Workhorse – Part 2: Putting Innovation to the Test

Welcome to the second blog post detailing the development of the Mishimoto 6.4L Powerstroke upper radiator support bar. Last time, we looked at why front-end chassis flex in the 6.4 Super Duty has the potential to exceed a safe magnitude, using our advanced American architecture as a comparison. We learned that too much flex spells possible consequences, so we made it our goal to stiffen things up. But how did we do it?

A Cooler Cummins- Intercooler R&D, Part 5: Test Results

Waiting is never an enjoyable pastime, and I feel confident saying this as a rather impatient individual, especially when it comes to ordering parts. After the initial wincing as I type my credit card information in and press confirm, I try to be patient only to end up refreshing my tracking number periodically throughout the day. Even at this moment I have a UPS tab open anxiously awaiting a shiny new oil pump for my track car. Well, the wait is over (for 4th-gen owners at least); testing is complete! Before we could begin testing, Team Mishi had to tackle the … Continue Reading ››

No One Likes a Leaking Cap – Washer Fluid Reservoir R&D, Part 2: Improving on OEM

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 ››
