The last piece of this puzzle has finally fallen into place. Finishing off our offerings for the 2016+ Chevy Camaro SS exhaust systems lands us here with our Race Axleback. The SS has an unmistakable sound, and it’s a sound we don’t want to stray far away from – we only want to enhance it in the most robust way possible, and I feel that the engineers have done just that.
I’ll make this simple – this exhaust is mean
It’s a mix of a modern sounding V8 with the raspy aggressive tone of … Continue Reading ››
At Mishimoto we are big fans of our little blue car. Over the past few months you could say we have formed a bond that only burnouts and track days can build. In testing various Focus RS parts (and maybe doing a few donuts, for science) we noticed that it is very easy to make the rear differential in the RS angry, and you won’t like it when its angry. The rear diff makes the rules. Overheat it, and you're likely to end up parked for the day. When the rear diff heats up, the ECU in the RS pulls … Continue Reading ››
I think we can all agree that the past couple weeks have been quite eventful here in the United States.
Regardless of which political candidate you supported, it’s time to move on and unify now that our election has concluded. Whether or not we’re happy about the outcome, we – as a society – need to be working together now. But certain Facebook friends can’t seem to figure that out. You all know the one(s). Regardless of their political allegiances, they flood our news feeds with statuses high in pressure and often full of hot air. It’s … Continue Reading ››
A Gaggle of Pipes,
Hello everyone! You may remember from our previous 2016 Camaro SS Exhaust post that we have decided to move forward with five different systems for this car. It is my pleasure to let you know that all our Camaro exhaust prototypes have been completed. We’ve been busy testing and re-testing for fitment, sound, durability, and performance – and fun, of course. Our on-road testing process usually begins a little something like this:
Rob, the project manager: “Hey Gardiner, I need you to take the SS home tonight to put some … Continue Reading ››
In our last post, we took a look at the stock Mustang automatic transmission cooler and our plans to make it even better. We designed the cooler in Solidworks, based off the measurements obtained from both the GT and the stock cooler. We will be doing our R&D with this bold yellow GT, but based on our research, this cooler will fit all models of S550 Mustang including the EcoBoost and V6. But enough about fitments, the prototype is complete! It is time to see how well our digital design translated into a real-life prototype.
