History: With over 30 years of engine
building experience Michael LeFevers started Mitech Racing Engines in 1990 to build reliable, high horsepower engines
at reasonable costs.
Mike’s engine development and building expertise includes a 10 year stint at Carroll Shelby Enterprises as Engine
Development Director, and 5 years working in Gale Banks Engineering's engine department. He was on the road internationally
with the top 3 ranked SCCA Trans-Am & IMSA race team of Les Lindley, and in ’87- ’88 while working for Fischer
Engineering was involved in the Buick Indianapolis program and spent the month of May at speedway. This has led
to winning and record setting power plants for drag racing, road racing, offshore power boats, & performance
street use. He has also spent time in the engineering dept. of a major turbocharger manufacturer and been involved
with multi-staged turbocharged engines powering remotely piloted surveillance aircraft flying to over 50,000 feet.
High endurance extreme output engines are a specialty of the company, so for fun they take the twin turbo small
block that pushed the Kugel & LeFevers ’92 Pontiac Firebird to become the first factory production car to set
a record over 300 MPH at the world famous Bonneville Slat Flats! Mike is also a proud life member of the Bonneville
200 MPH club.
Mike was also instrumental in the development of the Carroll Shelby all aluminum 427 FE type engine block and companion
products, and due to it’s sterling technical reputation Mitech is often called upon for consulting services by
many in the industry. Mitech also has a complete in house machine shop, a Superflow SF600 airflow test bench, and
computerized SF901 engine dyno. This assures your engine not only gets the exact type and quality of work needed
but that the work is not held up or just pushed through by outside vendors. Engine durability is not compromised
for the sake of horsepower at Mitech, and as Mike likes to say, "anyone can screw the nuts and bolts together,
but power and durability only come from the correct use of parts and people".
