Who is Bob Kurgan?

If you don't know or haven't heard.

One of the best tuners in the country will be here in sunny southern ca for 2 days tuning cars!!!!

PM fiveliterfox ( Jeremey ) for all the details. Bob says he can tune upwards of 15 cars in one day ( DAMN!!!!! )

You can also follow up on the thread leading up to the event which will take place on Sept 16-17 ( 2 days ). Just go to region, west, and click on dyno day Kurgan to see what going on leading up to that date.

We would like to have as many cars show up as possible, because there is plenty space available.

lol.... You guys are funny.

Speaking of tuning blindfolded..... He help get one of our guys situated with a tune via Internet. Bob took over his car while the owner was driving it. Gave him a tune that would get him up and running, while in the comfort of his own home/shop.

I taught Bob Everything he knows about tuning....but not everything I know.

Bob Kurgan tuned Chuck Norris' truck with a cell phone, gum wrapper and piece of thermostat wire.

They say what goes up must come down but I ain't reached my cruising altitude.
Take a look at what I did but can you imagine what I'm about to do.

Bob Kurgan taught Chuck Norris to bore a bare block. He starts with a bare block of metal and then punches holes in it with his bare fists.

NASA asked Bob to do mail order tunes for the Space Shuttle. He stopped when they made so much torque, foam insulation started falling off.
