T Mark Tools-Sockets and Wrenches for the finishing touch.

T Mark Tools, located at booth 51310, will be making its first appearance at this year’s 2017 SEMA Show. Mark Carli, the creator of T MARK® Tools, grew up around different car projects as well as his own restorations. After a lot of frustration and not finding anything on the market to fit a craftsman's needs, he started to work toward what is today T Mark Tools; a company providing finishing tools that will NOT scratch chrome nuts and bolts. Come by the Performance Pavilion, booth 51310, and see for yourself the state-of-the-art line of non-metal sockets and wrenches. As a first time exhibitor, T Mark Tools is excited to share its products and solve your problems.

Mishimoto Intercooler Pipe kits for the 2016+ Camaro 2.0T and 2013+ Cadillac ATS

Expose your 2.0T LTG engine to improved airflow with the Mishimoto Performance Intercooler Pipe Kit for the 2016+ Chevrolet Camaro. The stock intercooler pipes are plagued by bends and a restrictive diameter. Both slow the airflow to your intercooler. The stock piping is also constructed of plastic and rubber, which will deteriorate over time on top of restricting air to your engine. This Mishimoto intercooler pipe kit is constructed of mandrel-bent aluminum and features a larger diameter to minimize any airflow restrictions. These pipes can handle the power you throw at them when turning up the boost on your LTG.

Mishimoto 2010-2015 Camaro SS Baffled Catch Can kit

The LS3 and L99 engines fitted to the 5th Gen Camaro SS generate an impressive 400+ horsepower from their eight cylinders. But those eight cylinders produce something a little less impressive: blow-by. Oil, fuel, and other by-products of combustion squeeze their way past piston rings with each stroke. Left unchecked, that blow-by can work its way into your Camaro’s intake and rob the engine of power and efficiency. Enter the Mishimoto 2010-15 Camaro SS direct-fit catch can kit.

Mishimoto 2012-2015 Camaro SS Aluminum Radiator

The Mishimoto performance aluminum radiator for the 2012–2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS is the ideal upgrade over the stock Camaro radiator. The last thing you want is to be limited by the factory unit during a hot day at the track or when you're stuck in traffic. Our engineers know that, and our design reflects this by increasing cooling efficiency by 22%. Curious how much 22% really is? Well, considering our radiator lets your cooling system gain a 0.25 gallon of extra capacity and lowers coolant temps by a proven 35°F, that 22% is pretty impressive.

With polished end tanks and all-aluminum construction, the Mishimoto Camaro SS radiator looks as good as it performs. As with all our aluminum radiators, this Camaro SS radiator comes with our signature Lifetime Warranty.

Direct fit for 2012-2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS
› All-aluminum radiator provides a 35°F temperature drop when compared to stock
› TIG-welded to perfection with a fully brazed aluminum core
