Have you ever wondered why your car or truck specifies a certain type of coolant? Well, there are many reasons, but one of the biggest is to prevent mixing of incompatible fluids. In this video, Eric and Jason show us the results of mixing incompatible coolants and the effect it can have on the life of your engine and cooling system. Take a look to learn how you can avoid this costly mistake and keep your cooling system in pristine shape.
Sometimes there are products we can’t wait to get on the market. The sense of urgency follows positive feedback after a release or hinting at a recently started project. There’s pride in giving people what they want, what the need. When our 2003-2007 6.0L Powerstroke Transmission Cooler Kit was released, the question that kept coming was if it would fit the 7.3L. What followed was a “no, sorry.” That didn’t sit well with us. The efforts grew exponentially as more questions surfaced about fitment, and as the number of requests to make a direct fit kit increased. Now, a 7.3L version is set to release, and ahead of schedule.In retrospect, it would have been best to provide all you 7.3L owners with upgraded cooling when the transmission cooler first launched. The reason why our 6.0L kit wasn’t on option then was due to the hose routing. The lines are different. The 6.0L already has hoses that can adapt to our cooler without the necessity of lines from us. The inlets and outlets are in different spots here, so we needed to carefully design hoses that would properly fit the 7.3L. The cooler is the exact same, so the hardware is what needed to change in this kit to make it a direct fit.Transmission cooler core size comparison to the factory unitSee just how much larger our core is!As most of you Powerstroke-heads know, the factory transmission cooler in these older trucks are swapped out in favor of the 26-row or 31-row 6.0L transmission coolers. We only tested our current cooler design against the bigger 31-row cooler to confirm that we are doing all we can to improve the cooling these transmissions need. Our 37-row, stacked plate cooler achieved a 10–12°F improvement over the 6.0L cooler. Fluid pressure showed an improvement, too, with a maximum drop of 0.5 psi. All of this is due largely in part to the increased fluid volume, which increased by 21% above the factory unit. We have a full write-up on the testing conditions and data for you to look at.We didn’t perform the same testing for this cooler on a 7.3L Powerstroke, but our core is almost 2.5 times the size of the stock 7.3L cooler with nearly triple the rows. We also already proved that it out-performs even the 31-row the 6.0L cooler. Whether you’re off-roading, towing the racecar or race-bike to the next track day, taking a scenic drive up some steep inclines, or working another day on the job, this cooler will ensure your transmission stays happy.Our cooler with the new lines installed!One of the new hoses connected to the coolerI was only able to get this shot because this truck is lifted!We are excited to announce that this kit will be released later next week! We are skipping the presale and going right to the product release. It will be available for purchase, in stock and ready to ship to your doorstep with an MSRP at $375. There’s no reason to wait any longer than you already have. I’ll be sure to update this blog with the product link once we make it available on our site. Thanks for reading!New lines that will come with the 7.3L kit
Mishimoto prides itself on the ability to improve the cooling systems on just about any vehicle that rolls through the garage door. Intercoolers have become our bread and butter at this point. That being said, BMW’s are notoriously over-engineered, so improving on the meticulous German design isn’t going to be an easy task.It seems that the engineers at BMW wanted to make sure they provided the best equipment on their “Ultimate Driving Machine,” which means tight spacing. Peeling the front bumper cover from our loaner 2014 335i M Sport reveals a space no bigger than a toaster oven. A tricky intercooler project lies ahead, but that’s OK, because we’re up to the challenge.The front fascia is secured on tight, but our engineer Steve, left, and project manager, Rob, make short work of it.The F30 335i with the front fascia removed. The M-Sport aero package includes its own full set of shrouding and duct work.BMW already has an adequate design on their stock intercooler. It’s a stout tube and fin unit with a fair balance of fin density and spacing. On top of that, the diverters residing in the inlets ensure the full use of the core when cooling charged air. The shaping of the M-Sport aero bumper cover and use of shrouds directs maximum airflow not only to the intercooler, but to the four other different cooling units mounted on the F30’s front end. It’s also apparent that there was a collection of careful engineering that went into the stock intercooler’s mounting configuration. The plastic end tanks are cut to precision to ensure the intercooler nests between the primary radiator and the undercarriage cover. In short, the intricacies of the front-end design mean that we have our work cut out.The Stock intercooler unit. Note the guides on the end tanks for seamless mounting under the primary radiator.BMW packed a lot of fins into a small space.The well-designed front end adds a second degree of difficulty to our design process. In a perfect world, we would increase the density, and surface area, and take up whatever available space is left. The problem with this model is there isn’t much space, and blocking the other components could lead to increased coolant temperatures. One of the challenges we’re facing in this process is the shrouds. Our loaner 335i has the aggressive M Sport aero package on it, which is not the most commonly used front fascia for the current 3 series.The full array of shrouding and ducts that had to be removed just to get to the intercooler.The standard cover not only uses a different shape, but also different shrouding. Ideally, our new intercooler will be designed to fit on the 4-series, as well as the 2-series, but, you guessed it, each model has its own set of fasciae and shrouding. The size requirements vary from each model and accessory package, so we are working on a solution to have a unit that fits across the board but still retains the factory trim.The available space we have to work with for our intercooler design.Because of our limited timeframe with the Bimmer, and the intricacies of the project our engineer is already at work on the improved design of the intercooler, and sifting through the complexity that is BMW’s abundance of fasciae and shrouds.Steve using our Faro Design ScanArm to create a 3D model of the stock unit so he can determine the envelope for our improved design.
