When these cars are pushed to the limits, the stock cooling system can start to hold them back. So to keep our 86 far from the danger of overheating, we upgraded the cooling system with Mishimoto’s aluminum radiator, silicone hoses, and Liquid Chill coolant.
Mishimoto’s radiator is over twice as thick as the factory one with 46% more cooling capacity and it’s backed with a lifetime warranty. This equates to a cooling system that will keep this car much cooler during extended periods of performance driving for years to come. Even though the new radiator is much thicker, there is still plenty of room for a Vortech supercharger and no clearance issues for a front mount intercooler.
We installed Mishimoto’s Silicone hose kit to help reduce temperature and increase pressure tolerance from it’s four layers of high grade silicon with heat-resistant fibers. But they’re not just available in red, they also come in black for a more oem look or blue to add some color to the engine bay. And this hose kit is also backed by Mishimoto’s lifetime warranty.
Lastly we added Mishimoto’s Liquid Chill synthetic engine coolant. This helps the engine warm up quickly, drop operating temperatures, and reduce engine wear. It also inhibits corrosion and even seals pinhole leaks. Mishimoto also makes a Liquid Chill coolant additive that can be easily added to any coolant system and still you give similar benefits.
