Fabrication and Automotive Performance Expertise
Some of the world’s best automotive performance experts work hard to ensure that the parts and products at KT4 are top notch. Pictured above we have Big Mike (Expert Automotive Performance Mechanic) on the left and Tim Richards (Master High Performance Fabrication Expert) on the right. With over 30 years experience between them in building and racing high performance machines, they bring their expertise to KT4 where they help ensure high quality performance parts, expert knowledge in performance tuning and turbo kit development with proven automotive excellence.
Besides the work Tim and Mike do at KT4 one of their greatest achievements is a beautiful Mk4 Supra that has been featured in a Fast and Furious franchise movie. Most people take the standard 2JZ in the supra and tune it to crazy power with a big turbo, but that was too played out for Mike and Tim. They decided to build their Supra with a 1GZ V12 from a Toyota Century, gave it AWD and then twin turbo. Truly one of the world’s most bad ass Supras! They bring their performance expertise to KT4 so you can rest assured you’re getting performance parts from performance experts!
Founder – Samih Toubia Jr
Hello everyone, my name is Samih, though some may know me as KobeT4Hunnid or Volvo Man! There is nothing that I love more in this world than my Volvos and I started KT4 Performance to be able to serve those that share my passion for Volvos and Volvo performance. I wanted to serve a community that was desperately in need and I work hard everyday to develop as many new performance part options for the Volvo community as possible. I want my Volvo brothers and sisters out there to know I have nothing but love for them, I want to see them succeed and if there is ever anything you need give my team a shout! We will do whatever we can to make your Volvo dream a reality! Volvo Life, Please Believe
I graduated from the University of Denver with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Corporate Finance and Entrepreneurship.
Here you can see a pictures of me back in High School when I was Volvo man! Funny I know, but I have to represent! 😉

Chief Financial Officer – Eric Ng
Eric manages the financials, inventory, and packaging of KT4 products. He has 4 years of experience managing and working at a bicycle repair shop. Many of the skills of managing a bike shop (i.e. inventory management, customer service, quality control, etc.) can transfer over to an automotive parts company. Eric has experience and certification working as a financial paraplanner, which benefits the company because of Eric’s ability to develop projections for the future. He also has experience working in multiple customer service positions.
Since joining the company, Eric has become a big fan of Volvos; he loves to go fast. He enjoys modifying bicycles and changing parts to help them reach their fastest speed. Cars are similar in that there are many pieces that all need to work together in order for it to function properly, just like a bike. After meeting the CEO and CTO in 2019, Eric was enthusiastic to join the team and seeks to expand the company to new heights.
Eric has an undergraduate degree in finance from the University of Denver. He also has a minor in international relations and is fluent in Mandarin as well as English. Having lived in multiple countries, Eric brings in a unique international business perspective that will benefit KT4 as the company expands.
