Hot and Cold – Intercooler Pipes R&D, Part 3: A Numbers Game

When it comes to data testing, our engineering department avoids cutting corners. Each product we put on the market is vigorously tested so we can be confident our products can withstand the abuse you intend to throw at them. With the intercooler piping for the 2016 2.0T LTG engine, we have gone through the proper steps to get the data gearheads want to see. Our engineer put our dyno and flow bench to work to see how our design stacks up. We plan to offer these intercooler pipes individually as well as a kit, so both the cold and hot-side pipes … Continue Reading ››

Hot and Cold – Intercooler Pipes R&D, Part 2: Almost There

We have a lot of advanced equipment at our disposal that would make a design for an upgraded intercooler pipe kit for this 2016+ Chevy Camaro 2.0T superior over stock in many ways. We aren’t only aiming for these pipes to have spot-on fitment. It’s crucial to think about every design detail and consider how you can keep these pipes with you throughout your quest for more power without having to do anything to them. This means incorporating design features that can support even more modifications – whether you plan to use them or not. I’ll take you through how … Continue Reading ››

Getting Into The Thick of It – Intercooler R&D, Part 2: The Core Concept

I’ve always wondered if it’s a coincidence that the start of tax-return season is timed so conveniently with the startup of the race season for us gearheads. How is it that our hard-earned money withheld from our wages the previous year is graciously beset upon our bank accounts, but then immediately drawn right back out to fund the rest of the car parts we all want? It’s something I succumb to almost every year, with 2017 not excluded, and I know I won’t be alone. There are just some things we all need for our cars to reach that next … Continue Reading ››

Chevrolet Camaro Performance Intake Kit PreSale

  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 ››

Tanks, But No Tanks – Overflow Tank, Part 1: OEM Review and 3D Models

I have been a big fan of Subaru vehicles for a substantial part of my life, and I have lots of experience with WRXs, but the BRZ (and FR-S) is still very new to me. Not too long ago, one of our engineers had his 2013 Subaru BRZ out in the parking lot, and I asked him to pop the hood so that I might check out the power plant. Have you ever seen an old episode of Scooby-Doo when Shaggy opens a door and jumps about a mile in the air, screaming, having revealed the spooky ghost residing therein? Well, … Continue Reading ››
