Since 1962, the Research & Development Shop here at Kooks has been a crucial part of the company. The capabilities of the shop range from engineering parts to fit new vehicles to complete custom jobs for any car or engine. There are a wide range of vehicles that come through the shop from drag racing to circle track, motorcycles, vintage muscle cars, late model, import and domestic.  In addition to making sure your vehicle has the best performing products in the industry, we research, engineer, and Dyno test each product.  


The Custom Shop prides itself on design integrity and pristine aesthetics, in addition to making sure your vehicle has the best fitting and performing products.

Quality materials are used in the Custom Shop, such as: mild, aluminized, and stainless steel as well as aluminum. Using top-notch materials  is vital to being the best.

It takes four things to work in Kook’s Custom and R&D department:

  • Experience
  • Knowledge
  • Fabricating skills
  • Patience


The team always knows how to approach a vehicle and creates a game-plan custom to each job. To assure the highest customer satisfaction, the shop is stocked with state of the art equipment and is backed by a team with many years of experience.
