Sounds from an American Muscle Car – Exhaust R&D, Part 4: Sound Check

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 ››

I Am the Aux Rad – Auxiliary Radiator R&D, Part 4: Decision, Test, and Pre-Sale

Welcome to a very special update on one of the more unique Camaro parts we’ve got in our R&D arsenal: The Mishimoto 2016+ Camaro Auxiliary Radiators. If you're just joining us now, learn all about the stock auxiliary Camaro radiator in our first post.

Last time, we discussed two possible design options for these heat exchangers, but now I’ve got the word on our final decision. I’ll explain in detail the efforts and testing methodology we employed to come to our decision, but first, let me make an announcement:

Eliminating the Eyesore – Expansion Tank R&D, Part 3: Test Fit

Welcome, Camaro enthusiasts, to the latest progress report on our 2016 Camaro coolant expansion tank. I know that it’s been a little while since our last update, but as Santa Claus my mother always told 8-year-old me when I’d ask for a Power Wheels car: Good things come to those who wait. I’m still patiently waiting, but fortunately you don’t have to.

That coulda been ME!
That coulda been ME!

We’ve been very hard at work on these 2016 Camaro parts and numerous other … Continue Reading ››

Baby You’re an Aux Rad – Auxiliary Radiator R&D, Part 3: 3D Print Test Fit

2016+ Camaro Auxiliary Radiator Discounted Pre-Sale has begun!

When we left off last time, I teased you a bit with a couple of 3D models representing the possible directions in which we might be taking the Mishimoto Camaro SS auxiliary radiator design. We have continued the discussion among our engineering team and have not yet come to a conclusion on how to proceed. We have, however, taken action to explore both options in greater depth.

We felt that fitment and compatibility with stock radiator ducting is definitely one of this project’s more important considerations, so we wanted … Continue Reading ››
