Doug Kukucka has an extensive knowledge base involving vehicle performance.

Automotive technical talent and proficiency is more than an overnight adventure but a passion that never ends.
From the time he was young, Doug Kukucka has engineered his future in the
field of automotives by tinkering with small engines of all sorts. This progressed into a new found hobby and business after his graduation from high school. Doug Kukucka graduated from a Vocational Technical High School in Maryland and was selected as a back-up team member for the Plymouth Troubleshooting Contest. Though the contest was cancelled when Chrysler suffered huge financial losses and filed for bankruptcy. After graduation, Doug Kukucka worked a few years rebuilding components for General Motors Detroit Diesel Engines at a local factory reconditioning engine shop.
After some thought, Doug Kukucka decided to attend college at the University of Maryland with a major in Mechanical Engineering. To fund college, he opened a small shop repairing, reconditioning, and performing performance modifications to automobiles. He has expertises in all aspects of automotive work. Such expertises include, diagnostics, engine/transmission rebuilding, body work, paint work, electrical, sound systems, alarm systems, performance modifications, electrical, HVAC, exhaust, brakes, suspension, welding, etc.. While attending college (senior year), Doug Kukucka participated as a team member in the design and creation of a mini-Formula 1 vehicle as a member of the engine team. Such dedication by his team-mates and him kept the University of Maryland in the high rankings of colleges to beat in national competitions. Mr. Kukucka also participated in research and design work involving conversion of a GM product to M85 fuel for an EPA sponsored competition.
Mr. Kukucka spends a lot of his spare time researching all aspects of engine development. Specific interests include intake ducting, alternative fuel systems, forced induction, and combustion/engine processes to name a few. Mr. Kukucka believes such research and hands-on expertise shall ultimately lead to patents that take the automotive industry to a new level. He also spends his leisure time repairing/restoring and modifying his own Ford vehicles including technical modifications to meet his performance needs.
With so much technical talent displayed by this individual in the field of automotives and engineering, American ingenuity is alive and well. For such a combination of skills and love for the automobile is what led to the automotive and performance revolution in the United States long ago!
