I am a proud new owner of one of MPH FABRICATION’s products! Call it a bias opinion or not, but regardless, the man and products behind the MPH Fab brand is quality at its finest.
I should stop there….but I won’t.
I’m here to tell you why this CF material separates itself from the rest.
I said “real” carbon fiber. Why? Now, this isn’t to bash other reputable brands that technically use real carbon fiber. The difference is that they use a layer of carbon fiber over a layer of different other material such as fiber glass, gel coating to give its thickness and cheap resin to give its stiffness. Almost purely for cosmetic (show car) purposes. But what about the real-real thing? There are only a few out there with the gift of “carbon fiber hands” and Joel Marsh is one of them. MPH Fab products use real carbon fiber and is made almost entirely of carbon fiber. Layers of carbon fiber with techniques and materials to maximize strength to weight ratio’s.
Lets take the Front Air Splitter for example.
“Made with a 1/2″ thick foam core in the middle of four layers of high strength aerospace grade 12K carbon fiber infused with top of the line UV stable resin, and chassis mounted…” yeah ok we get it Joel. Your stuff is the S*!T.
Yup you heard right. 4 layers of aerospace, 12k carbon fiber.Some people don’t even know what that means. “Aerospace? Like they use that on spaceships?” Technically you’re in the same ball park. Aerospace has to do with space Aviation technology so yes, its pretty serious stuff, but lets not get into that. The splitter will eat up all the down force mother nature has to offer and keep the front end of your car on the ground.
Because of the material MPH Fab uses, the splitter is thinner than most, lighter than most, and stronger than most. Look at this insanity! Two grown ass men at least 150lbs each are standing on the product.
Test 1 consist of 2x 55lb’s rubber plates and 2x 45lb steel plates totaling to 200lbs. No Flex
Test 2. Adding a 35lb rubber plate. 235lbs. No Flex
Test 3. Adding a 45lb steel kettle bell. 280lbs. No Flex
Test 4. Is testing to see if you guys are believers by now lol
Its easy. More time consuming than it is hard. It took me and a friend of mine about an hour and a half to get this thing on (without the down time of taking the front bumper off). When it was all said and done, after clean up time and a couple break times, we took about 3 hours all together and all your instructions are here
I came to MPH Fabrication as a customer before we were able to become a dealer for them. The customer service and attention to detail they put into their products is bar none. Coming from the man himself, “…if I wouldn’t put it on my car I don’t wanna see it shipped out to go on yours!”
Are you convinced yet?

Now I am not normally one for a super loud exhaust and I’m definitely not saying these will make your ears bleed either. But damn do these things sound good.
I haven’t personally owned one of these 4 JDM Horsemen but I have heard them and ridden in cars with one of them on. First impression was, “Holy S*!#, what was that?” After walking towards the glass door, I see this FRS hard parking in front of our shop. Fast forward 20-30 mins later and I’m in this man’s car.
Equipped with a Tomei UEL header, other aftermarket over pipe, stock front pipe and the Tomei Type 80 single exit exhaust you, this thing doesn’t sing. It Roars! Not that nasty kitty cat, choking on a fur ball, roar. We’re talking Lions protecting their cubs or a Tiger after claiming its prey. We’re talking Beast!
For how exceptionally loud it is. There was no drone in the cabin which is something you would probably expect with an exhaust like this. Best of all, there was no rasp in the exhaust note. Big Plus! (though I can’t speak for other UEL-Exhaust Combo). It keeps is nice, deep, tone throughout the whole way.
Ok I will say this. I hope some of you are lucky enough to keep up with my blog posts the last 2-3 weeks and actually read through them. Because today and throughout the weekend I’m running a deal on these Lion, Tiger, Li-ger mods. Now and throughout the weekend receive an extra special discount on all Tomei products when you type in coupon code “TM5″
Go forth, Simba!
P.S. Want to sound like that guy in the video? Equip the Tomei Type 80 with the JDL Auto Design’s UEL Header
What is 86 Speed?
To most of our customers they see us formerly known as, “FTeightysix.” The guys who had the best pricing, outstanding customer service, and fast shipping. Here I am tooting our own horn, but the fact is it is 100% true. We love staying competitive, we pride ourselves in helping our customers the best way we can, and like you, we want our parts now!
Which is why we decided to to go with “FTeightysix.com” but have you ever tried explaining that to your friend or loved one?
Its happened to us on separate occasions and I’m pretty sure I never got a few emails back from people who either didn’t remember the name or didn’t remember how to spell it out.
So here we are! More than three successful years deep and with success comes change. Some of you may have noticed the website but all of you noticed the name.
So what is 86 Speed?
86 Speed is a group of guys & gals that are not only car enthusiasts but 86 enthusiasts. Each one of us either own or have owned one of the beautiful twins. We show our cars, we race our cars, and we track our cars. With that said, we are not only employee’s, we are also customers! We are the definition of true 86 Enthusiasts.
Every day like most of you, I will sit here thinking of what else I can do to my car as she sits right in front of me at my desk. “How can I make it look cooler? Does this part fit? Damn, I wish I was wide bodied! How will this sound? I need a wash.” and my most detrimental thought, “HOW CAN I MAKE IT GO FASTER??!”
Our 86’s are missing one key component–Speed. My biggest disappointment from this baby was that it didn’t go fast. Have you ever seen a car so clean, beautiful curves, looks fast but isn’t fast? Its the 86! There’s a saying “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” But…isn’t that what you’re supposed to do?!
We, here at 86 Speed, want to help you achieve your goals of beating the next guy, having that adrenaline rush, and looking good while doing it (or not). Whatever your goal and vision may be, express it to us and we’ll find a way to help you and make it happen!
Please follow us on social media on Facebook and Instagram (we follow back 😉 ) to get the scoop of whats going on around the 86 community, keep up with our SLAM Deals every weekend, and better yet keep up with what we have been up to lately
