MPFab’s Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 8

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 […]

Twin Turbo 1955 Chevy Pick-up truck

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 […]

3RZFE swapped Old School Toyota Celica

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 […]

2JZGTE Swapped 240sx

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 […]

RB26 Swapped 240Z

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 […]

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 321 stainless race header

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 […]

BMW E36 Differential Cooler

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 […]
