I bought the 2005 Evolution you see here new in Oct of 2004. It has been an obsession of mine for the last nine years. I wanted a white GSR without a sun roof, and it took a flight to Dallas, Texas to get it. This car has been extremely enjoyable to drive (when it’s not apart) for almost a decade […]
I’m using this 4.9lb, 54oCCA, gem of a battery in my Evo, and it only seemed right to house it in a custom made 1lb battery box . This setup now resides in the trunk of my Evo where it replaced the 42lb Odyssey battery and battery box behemoth that was there previously.
So this has nothing to do with fabrication, but it’s one of my favorite dog pictures ever. Just a dog immensely enjoying a popsicle on a hot day. Btw, retired Greyhounds make wonderful pets!
This was an interesting request from a great friend and customer in New Jersey. On paper, aluminum isn’t a great candidate for exhaust work, however, over the last few years I’ve seen aluminum exhaust show up on lots of drag cars with a few systems on street cars, as well. My customer said he wanted […]
This was one of my favorite builds of all time. The owner came to me and said, “I want tubes all over the place. I want people to stop dead in their tracks at car shows when they see this old truck and what’s under the hood.” Those were the only guidelines I had to work […]
This was a really cool bike to begin with. Add a turbo, and it just gets better!
This was really cool car that came to me awhile back. The owner had another shop install the engine, but quickly realized that the hood wasn’t going to shut with the stock intake manifold, and the layout also interfered with the turbo that had been installed. I was contacted to build an intake manifold, mount the […]
I’ve done a few turbo setups in these cars, and I absolutely love this combination. Nissan’s 240sx sports cars are plentiful, lightweight, and often inexpensive to purchase. There’s plenty of room under the hood for a multitude of different engines, but the 2JZ swap is one of my favorites. The 2JZ is a legendary import power plant capable of handling 1000+whp […]
The S400 Borg Warner turbocharger on this V-8 Buick T-Type had a 5″ inlet. Due to the turbo placement, it required me to get creative when designing the inlet pipe.
This was one of the first projects I ever did as MPFab. I was asked to build the turbo inlet pipes, charge piping, and intercooler. This car was absolutely stunning in person. The rear wheels were 13″ wide! Given the power potential of the RB26 under the hood, I’d say that was a good call on the […]
By utilizing better materials, one can often shed weight. Such is the case with this 321 stainless header designed here at MPFab. Typical turbo manifolds use a lower grade of stainless, often 304. In order for 304 to live in a turbo environment reliably, the wall thickness has to be increased. The subsequent increase in wall thickness […]
This system was designed for a customer who continued to boil the fluid in the differential of his E36 race car. He had already installed the Alpina diff cover which added capacity and large cooling fins to combat the problem, but it still existed. I developed this trunk mounted cooler utilizing a Setrab heat exchanger, Mocal differential pump and […]
