MP founding statement
Modern Performance was founded in June of 1997 in Houston, Texas. Modern Performance was created by Cory Haines on his belief that the aftermarket part distributors that serviced the 95-99 Dodge Neon were giving poor service to Neon owners.
In the late 90's, and even to this day, the American Four cylinder car was always neglected in the Sport Compact market and MP moved in to fill the need. MP first started offering parts for the 95-99 Dodge/Plymouth Neon, then the 00-05 Dodge Neon, the 00-03 Ford Focus, and in later years expanded to fill the need for products for the 03-05 Dodge SRT-4, 05+ Chevrolet Cobalt and the 08+ Dodge Caliber SRT-4.
Modern Performance grew quickly in the first few years because of the commitment to customers, and fast delivery. MP's first warehouse was 3,000 square feet, then moved to a 5,000 square foot warehouse, and we're currently in a 8,000 square foot warehouse.
MP has always been based on fast delivery of products, and so we strongly believe in keeping the products you want in STOCK. We dont believe in dropshipping from some other company, we want to ship products from our warehouse directly to you to get the product as fast as possible. MP is also very proud to have a phone support staff that promptly answers your questions. Also, due to MP hiring all of its employees that were at one point customers, we have a staff of employees that know the vehicles we carry parts for. We update our website every day for making checking out online easier and faster. You can also call us direct to place your order over the phone. If you do not see an item on our site that you are interested in getting please contact us by phone. We send all order confirmations by email letting you know if your order has shipped or if its on backorder. We will price match any competitor out there excluding Ebay and Amazon.
MP, due to moving such huge volumes of products, has been named the highest volume distributor of many product lines. Some of the companies we are direct stocking distributors and high volume movers are : Mopar Performance, Vibrant Performance, Depo/Maxzone, Eibach, Crower and more.
MP has advertised in Mopar Action, Mopar Now, Super Street, Performance Auto and Sound magazine. MP has also sponsors many online car forums, car meets, and national car specific meets.
We will continue to develop products for the American Four Cylinder car, and we will continue to give you great service, and get the products you want to you FAST. We hope to have an opportunity to help you with your parts needs soon!
