Simplicity is often the key to great engineering. The same can be said about Ford’s F-150. The F-150 is about function over frills and getting the job done. Our 2015+ Ford F-150 transmission cooler will follow the same formula. Our focus will be on one key aspect: use as much of the space behind the F-150’s grille as possible. As we saw in our first post, the stock transmission cooler only utilizes about 50% of the available space. To increase that usage to 100% without adding unnecessary complications is where we'll get the job done, plain and simple.
Hyundai may have never been a brand synonymous with producing the driver’s car. Their models are often used as some sort of punchline to illustrate what we gearheads don’t want in our cars. There have been some contenders throughout the years to ward off the bad jokes, but the quirky, asymmetrical Veloster that followed the Genesis earns the most credit for injecting new energy into Hyundai’s image. Its release had us all thinking that the real spirited driving experience finally made its way to the well-known manufacturer.

The movement on the 2016 Ford Focus RS intercooler project may seem slow, but it couldn’t be more alive. Our lead engineer for the project, at my request, has completed a plethora of testing configurations to get the most detailed amount of data possible. For the past three months, we have been rocking out on testing, testing, and more testing for the RS, the primary objectives being movement on the upcoming diff cooler and this front-mount intercooler. We know that the RS crowd loves their data, so we want to overload you with what’s finally available.
I won’t sugarcoat anything here. … Continue Reading ››
Everything about Ford’s Super Duty Powerstroke brand screams, well, Super Duty. It has done so since they were first put in the Econoline Vans in the mid ‘90’s. Our 2011 is equipped with the 6.7L turbodiesel V8 engine, and it’s clear Ford has engineers who really took the Super Duty term to heart. There are two batteries, two radiators, two thermostats, two coolant expansion tanks, an engine oil cooler, a transmission oil cooler, an EGR cooler – this truck even has a fuel cooler. Just looking at the engine bay of this monster can be a bit daunting, especially to … Continue Reading ››
Our Performance Intake kit is now available on Presale! Act fast to take advantage of the special pricing!
It certainly has been no picnic to get to this point. However, working on this unique, factory-turbocharged application from Chevy has brought to light the importance of the type of testing we do for our intake projects. We’ve gone through many configurations, spent countless design hours and logged hundreds of miles of road testing. This isn’t overkill at Mishimoto, we deem it a necessity.
The amount of time that passed by was no mistake. We spared no R&D … Continue Reading ››
