  • Corvette C8 Carbon Fiber Baffled Oil Catch Can by Mishimoto

    Corvette C8 Carbon Fiber Baffled Oil Catch Can by Mishimoto

    The Corvette C8 is the darling of the automotive aftermarket because of the incredible platform and potential the vehicle has to be a world dominating super car. As enthusiasts begin to modify the power output of the Corvette C8, either naturally aspirated or via forced induction such as a turbo or supercharger, there are certain aftermarket performance parts that need to be added that keep the vehicle reliable rather than just producing more power.

    Introducing the Mishimoto Baffled Oil Catch can in stunning carbon fiber.

    This carbon fiber oil catch can is a direct fit for the 2020+ Corvette C8 and has a cylone baffle that is designed using computation fluid dynamics for maximum air-oil separation, preventing oil buildup in your intake system.

    What does Mishimoto have to say about their Carbon Fiber Baffled Oil Catch Can for the Corvette C8?

    The 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Coupe, and the LT2 V8 under its hood, are the result of nearly 70 years and eight generations of technical evolution. It’s that long evolution that lets the LT2 crank out 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. But no matter how many years of heritage the C8 has behind it, it can’t outgrow one fundamental issue: blow-by.

    The LT2 shares the same direct-injection fuel system adopted by its predecessor, the LT1. While direct-injection is fundamental to the LT2s performance, it’s also what leaves it open to carbon buildup and detonation caused by blow-by. Without fuel washing over the intake valves, oil and carbon can build up, preventing proper combustion and robbing your C8 Corvette of power. Luckily, Mishimoto has the solution to protecting your Corvette’s LT2 and keep it running strong for generations to come.

    This direct-fit catch can kit diverts oil, fuel, water, and carbon away from the engine’s intake and valves to help prevent carbon buildup and misfires. This catch can features large ports to let your 6.2L V8 breathe, while the internal cyclone baffle and filter ensure the LT2 inhales nothing but clean air. The 7.4-fluid ounce carbon fiber catch can is supported by a 3mm-thick steel bracket that mounts the can in an easy to access location for ease of service. Our innovative carbon fiber catch can is constructed from 3K twill weave carbon, resulting in a lightweight design sure to enhance your engine bay. This kit includes two direct-fit hoses with pre-installed quick-disconnects to make installation a breeze. Each hose is protected with an abrasion guard to prevent any damage from chafing in the tight confines of the C8 engine compartment.

    Like all of our catch can kits, this 2020+ Chevrolet C8 Corvette Coupe Direct-fit Carbon Fiber Catch Can Kit is backed by the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty for a lifetime of protection.

  • Mishimoto Oil Cooler for BMW E60 M5 / E63 M6 / E64 M6 (2006-2010)

    Mishimoto Oil Cooler for BMW E60 M5 / E63 M6 / E64 M6 (2006-2010)

    The 2006-2010 BMW E60 M5 combines the spacious practicality of a four-door sedan with a naturally aspirated V10 powerplant producing a hypnotic soundtrack of intake/exhaust noise. But after over a decade of use, some of the E60’s components have begun to show their age. The factory engine oil cooler is a common leak point on the E60, typically from failed O-rings or cracked weld points. In addition, the location of the front-mounted cooler increases the chance of damage from road debris and general clogging of external fins, resulting in reduced cooling efficiency. That, combined with the high-strung engine and hefty chassis, means oil temperatures tend to rise during aggressive driving. That’s why our engineering team set out to remedy both issues with this performance oil cooler.

    Drawing on our vast experience with BMW’s and the latest in engineering tools, our team was able to create a direct-fit replacement oil cooler with substantial improvements in both durability and cooling efficiency. The Mishimoto Performance Oil Cooler features a robust bar-and-plate core, which provides improved durability and aids in heat rejection. Our core utilizes a strategic fin design which provides a 41% increase in external fin surface area and a 30% increase in internal fin surface area to help draw heat out of the oil and dissipate it into the air. Our oil cooler features CNC-machined inlet/outlet ports and includes new OEM O-rings for a seamless and leak-free installation. This cooler is finished in a silver powder coat, ensuring long term durability and corrosion resistance. And, as with all our BMW performance products, this oil cooler includes our signature Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.

    Black Flagged – Who and What Are We?

    Welcome to BlackFlagged.com!

    For a long time, I have been wanting to start an automotive media site. After many years of thinking about it, I decided to just go for it. Let me tell you a bit about myself and my new venture!

    So by Black Flagged?

    The definition of “Black Flagged” is motorsports related. Simply put, on a race track, when someone doesn’t follow the rules, drives crazy or is otherwise wanted off of the race track, the track officials wave a black flag at them to tell them to exit the race track. This is called getting “Black Flagged”. I thought it was a fun and perfect name for an automotive media site, so here we are!

    My goal is to grow this site to be a fun destination for automotive content and a fun place to check daily to see what’s new in the all encompassing world of automotive. I always liked clean, simple and minimalist websites and I will carry that tradition with BlackFlagged.com

    I plan on growing Black Flagged in multiple different ways and am excited for what’s in store.

    I hope you subscribe to our newsletter, bookmark our site and follow us on social media – thanks for reading!

  • CSF Mercedes-Benz W212 E63 / W218 CLS63 AMG Heat Exchanger & M157 Auxiliary Radiators

    CSF Mercedes-Benz W212 E63 / W218 CLS63 AMG Heat Exchanger & M157 Auxiliary Radiators

    CSF is excited to announce the newest additions to further expand on our full line of Mercedes-Benz AMG cooling products with the E63/CLS63 Heat Exchanger (CSF #8197) & M157 Auxiliary Radiators (CSF #8198)!

    CSF is kicking off the new year with two new additions to their growing Mercedes-Benz AMG cooling product lineup – M157 Auxiliary Radiators and a Front Mount Heat Exchanger for the E63, CLS 63, and more.

    Two new part numbers!
    • E63/CLS63 High-Performance Front Mount Heat Exchanger (CSF #8197)
    • M157 High-Performance All-Aluminum Auxiliary Radiators (CSF #8198)

    If you’ve been following along with CSF’s products, you’ll see that they emerged in the AMG market with their W205 C63 AMG Heat Exchanger – it quickly became a #1 seller, so they took its momentum and created a full Mercedes-Benz AMG cooling line. CSF has mastered the charge-air cooling system, like the one found in new AMG models. The system features a water circuit that flows through the vehicle’s charge cooler(s) and a heat exchanger, which uses the water to cool the compressed air.

    Upgrading to a larger, more efficient Heat Exchanger effects the entire rest of the charge-air cooling system – lowering IATs (intake air temperatures), thus creating cooler, denser air for increased power and an improvement in heat soak reduction.

    • 1 Row, 23mm Super-High Efficiency Core w/ CSF’s Exclusive B-Tube Technology
    • Over 40% More Tubes Than The OEM Heat Exchanger, Resulting in a Core Efficiency With Over 300% Increase in Flow Area and Twice the Cooling Performance
    • Ultra-Efficient, 5mm Tall Multi-Louvered Fins for Maximum Surface Area Contact
    • 100% All-Aluminum TIG-Welded Construction
    • Individually Leak and Pressure Tested
    • CNC Machined Brackets and Fittings

    • 2012-2015 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Convertible 6.3L V8 (W197)

    CSF’s High-Performance Auxiliary Radiators work in conjunction with the rest of the cooling system to reduce temperatures. They not only help keep temperatures in optimal ranges, prolonging the heat soak threshold, but also can be utilized as the heat exchange medium for the charge cooling system. 

    The included, detachable rock guard offers protection against the build-up of debris, as well as possible core punctures – unlike the OEM auxiliary radiators, which have little protection against the elements.
