Went down to Houston for The Clash of The Titans race. Bob had recently tuned a SCT chip for my 94 Cobra. Drove over 500 miles round trip and averaged 19mpg cruising at 70 ( 60lb injectors).
Right off the street it ran a 11.08 and on the second pass ran a 10.90 @ 127.35 with a 1.63 60' on 275-40-17 MT DR's. Weight w/ driver was 3,690lbs. Finally got my 10 second slip!

I ran a best of 9.66 @141 with my 347 street car and drove it there and back 20 miles on slicks!
here is the videos
This was done with an AEM ECU (purchased from Kurgan motor sports) and a stock dizzy...tunning was done by me and Bob via email and logs over a few months of some heavy street pulls
thanks for all the help!

huge thanks to Bob for a great tuning experience
he was very helpful and set by step told me what he was doing as he made changes. was always asking for input what direction i wanted to go with the car
the car feels much better than it did before and it is running much safer than it was
i would definitely suggest Bob for all your tuning needs

Just want people to know what a GREAT guy Bob is as a person/tuner.
I had just recently built a 4.6 for my 02GT. I invested big $'s into what was to be a mean N/A street/bracket car.
Then I took it for a Dyno Tune at a south suburban shop.To say the least I was very upset with the results. The shop had hosed me pretty well with up charges but the worst part was the car was down on power. I took it to the dragstrip and it ran slower than when I had a stock motor with bolt on's.
I actually lost .3-.4 on my 60ft. times and was running .1-.2 slower in the 1/4mile. I then decided to take it back to the strip again to make sure it wasn't just a bad night but got the same results the next time out.
I was sick after all the time,$ and energy I had a slower car.
So,I wrote Bob an e-mail about what I had in the engine/poor tune.
He got me a quick appoint. the following week. It took Bob only an hour and a half to tune it to PERFECTION! The car performs and sounds great. It's very streetable yet hooks and Screams at the track.
My 1st time out was proof that Bob is a GREAT TUNER!
....................Other Tuner............. Bob's Tune
Fastest 60 ft. BEFORE: 2.3,2.4 AFTER: 1.9
1/4 mile BEFORE:13.8,13.9 AFTER: 13.0 soon to be in the 12's
THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE SWEET TUNE!

Just wanted to take a moment and say a huge
Thank You to Bob Kurgan. He has been so helpful thorugh out this whole ordeal. I have had a couple DIablo mail order tunes and had nothing but issues, pinging, SES lights ect ect. I wasn't sure how far I was going to take my car but am so happy with what I did and where it sits. As soon as Bob's tune with the XCAL 2 went in, the SES light, lean driver side bank and all other issues were gone, never came back. The SCT is hands down in my opinion the way to go. Bob tuned my car this week and I pulled 284.80rwhp and 301.15rwtq on an AUTOMATIC!! I have stock heads and motor but so far the car has gone consistently 108/109 trapspeeds so I should be good for 12's if I can get some decent tires on the back. The car runs so smoothly now, no more quirks, drives just as it did the day I bought it, aside the little rougher idle which I totally like. Bob, you are gifted at what you do, thanks again!!! I will be calling in a few to get the nitrous tuned, you game?
284.80rwhp and 301.15rwtq
Best NA ET 13.58 @ 108.82

I have my car previously tuned by a local well known shop and I had some dissappointments in the tune. I contacted Bob via E-mail and after a few back and forth E-mails, I decided that even though I could not have Bob tune my car at his shop due to me being in Texas, he could get the job done with a little back and forth in the mail and verifying the a/f ratio with my wideband.
He sent me a chip with a couple of fuel curves and one of them was perfect. I just sent it back for him to give me a couple of timing curves and it runs perfect....better with the 60lb injectors than the 42's I had!

Well me and my 2004 Kenne Bell Cobra spent a few hours with Bob, The Dyno a couple of laptop's and his magic finger. But not only put the best tune on the car since I had it but he allowed close observation and provided me with explanations as to why he did what he did in the tune. In addition, he did not have to put the car under 100 pulls to get it right. Overall, a great experience for me and my car. Oh and by the way he has a decent sense of humor.
Bob thanks and we will Be Back.
The car runs like a raped ape on roids and no doze !!!!!

You've created another happy customer.
I purchased an SCT XCal2 and the Pro Racers package. SCT first sent me a bad XCal. Bob helped me work with SCT to get a new one in my hands before my next race.
Bob then went out of his way to take time out of his DR testing at Byron dragway to help me flash the first tune and see how it worked. Without the tune the car was running 103.5 MPH and instantly started running 109 MPH trap speeds. Can't ask for better results than that on the first try!

I purchased all my AEM stuff thru Kurgan Motorsports. Bob has given me great support with my AEM purchase and has even helped me tune! I ran my best of 10.16@141 with a safe tune on my street car and I hope to go even faster!
Its tuff to find places that even answer the phone let alone tech questions...Bob has ALWAYS either answered the phone or called me back quickly and has answered ALL my questions no matter how trival

I just want to thank bob for putting a bad ass tune on my notch last week. His knowledge of of SCT and will to take the time on the drivabilty aspect of the car was impressive, not to mention those power numbers that were better than I could of hoped for. Any new combo's or cars you got my business.

I was adding HCI along with switching to 42# injectors and an SCT maf and I needed a chipped burned so I didn't have to tow the car to the dyno. After trying to find someone to give me a base tune without seeing the car with no luck, a friend of mine told me I should contact Bob. Bob had no problem giving me a chip with a base tune on it. He told me what to set idle speed, timing, and fuel pressure at and the car fired on the first try! It drove pretty good too. When the weather finally cooperated, I had Bob tune it on the dyno. I was very pleased with the numbers, especially considering it was 95*, and he even fixed the minor drivability problems. Thanks again Bob!

long story here so bear with me guys. in march of 05 i had my car dynotuned by both a reputable and big speed shop here in the chicago area. said shop had me drop my car off for days (up to a week and a half) at a time, with no word as to when my car would be finished. the first time i picked my car up i noticed a ton of quirks right off the bat, but want to drive it for awhile to see if anything else would pop rather than just call a bunch of times something would come up.
these problems were 2 differnt lockup issues, a really hard idle, the car regularly stalling out, poor gas mileage, a surging idle, and a few other misc problems. the first time i called that shop, they said they would tweak the tune, and said to mail the flasher to them and they would try and correct it via mail. i sent the flasher through the mail at least 5 times. extrememly frusterated, i explaned to them that this wasnt working well. so in good faith that had me bring my car to them again (70 miles 1 way for me) and assured me everything would be taken care of. not the case, it came off the dyno still screwed up. livid, i didnt want to talk them anymore. i just wrote it off as money poorly spent.
thinking there is noone in the area that can tune my car i just drove it as is for a few months. then my buddy rick got word of kurgan, and had his car tuned by him. he told me he had it done in less than an hour, and he got to oversee everything and everything was explained to him, and his car made great power with great driveablity. after hearing this i set up an appointment with bob. he was extremely accomodating, i explained i had 5 days before i left town for 9 months, and i really wanted my car tuned. he rearranged his schedual some and told me he would meet me outside of rockford, a cruise for me but definately worth it. they got it strapped to the dyno, and he realized he didnt have a port to connect my 9100 to his software. he offered to sell me a chip at cost, but i couldnt really afford it. then he offered to trade me a chip for my flasher straight up, and i said deal. he then remembered he has a buddy who had a 9100, so he ended up burning my program onto a chip (to save time) and then transfered it to my flasher. if thats not customer service i dont know what is.
just like my buddy ricks car, he allowed me to watch everything, and even let me get involved with what was going on. he explained everything clearly, and professionally. he was able to put out the same numbers as the last tuner with a heatsoaked motor, and less timing into the tune. on top of it, on my trip from IL to WY i averaged 20mpg at 80 mph with 3.73s turning about 2800 rpms. and the icing on the cake...he called me while driving to make sure everything was cool and offered his assistance down the line if i ever needed anything. thanks again bob!

Well I made the switch to an AEM EMS for
my '93gt. Since the AEM was plug & play
for my car it was a no brainer as I did not
want to cut up my wiring harness.
Bob provided a startup tune for the 418 that
was very close. He was also easy to deal with
and gave me a very fair price on my AEM unit.
Thanks again Bob.

After months of waiting, bad weather and numerous emails. I was finally able to meet up with Bob for a dynotune on my 97 Cobra. Bob was able to achieve excellent results for me and get me to my goals. With his advice and willingness to listen the whole experience was very positive and very professional. Having previously attempted to work with a differant tuner. I was very turned off to the whole situation. But my experience today brought me back to what its all supposed to be about! Thank you very much Bob. I will be sure to share the experience with others.
