Mishimoto's 2016 Camaro SS Oil Cooler Pre-Sale

As the summer drags unremittingly further into the humid, heavy annals of August, it continues to push our air conditioners to the very cusp of their abilities, and I can’t help but to dream of cooler weather. I will certainly miss the summer, but a break from the hellish bake of these past few weeks will certainly be welcomed.

It’s pretty safe to say there’s not a whole … Continue Reading ››
