Cooling is Coming- Intercooler R&D, Part 1: Stock Evaluation

We have been working on the Titan XD for quite some time now. We have gone through a variety of products like the intercooler pipe kit, coolant filtration kit, and exhaust. Now we are down to the bread and butter of our Titan XD parts: the intercooler. When we begin projects, we like to start by evaluating the stock component and looking for areas where we can make improvements. The stock intercooler in the Titan is fairly sizeable and features cast aluminum end tanks, which we don’t normally see on stock intercoolers. Nissan has started off on the right foot with … Continue Reading ››

Little Caddy – Catch Can R&D, Part 4: ATS Hose Routing

Hello to all my wonderful Camaro 2.0T and Cadillac ATS owners! In our last update, we made the big reveal of our patent-pending blow-by tap.

A Cooler Cummins – Intercooler R&D, Part 4: Final Prototype

We are back with a much-needed update on our 13+ Dodge Cummins intercooler. For most of our projects, we work with a donor vehicle to conduct fitment and performance testing.

The good news is that we will not have to be patient for much longer, because testing is on our schedule! Once we complete testing in the coming weeks, we will be sure to share the results with you. In the meantime we can take a quick look at our finalized prototypes for testing! [caption id="attachment_9282" … Continue Reading ››

Cooling the Cummins- Radiator R&D, Part 1: Stock Evaluation

Since Mishimoto’s inception, we have grown to become more than just a radiator manufacturer; have expanded to offer many other performance parts for a variety of applications. For the Titan alone we already offer a several products, including an intercooler pipe and boot kit, exhaust, and coolant filtration kit. We have not, however, forgotten our roots. That being said, we have begun developing a radiator for our Nissan Titan XD.

What improvements will we make?

The stock radiator is sizeable compared to other stock units we have seen, but we still found some areas where we can improve on the … Continue Reading ››
