K & N Engineering,
worlds leading air filter manufacturer, Engine Builder Magazine and the
University of Northwestern Ohio present:-
A two day, two evening hi-tech performance/race engine building seminar hosted
by David Vizard one of the world’s most recognized authorities on the subject.
Presenter David Vizard, (Mr. Horsepower) first flowed a cylinder head May 1958.
After an apprenticeship and achieving degree level qualifications in the
aero-space industry as a research engineer, he started an engine shop in 1964.
In 1969 he wrote his first (of nearly 4000) engine building articles based on
actually doing the job. The publisher was so impressed he asked if DV could do
more. From here things snowballed. Within just 3 years DV was writing an
unprecedented 18 articles a month, for no less than 12 magazines. All from
firsthand experience building and developing race engines out of his shop with
lifelong friend and business partner Mike Lane. High demand for editorial
material brought into play two other factors contributing to DV’s major success.
First he was able to devote a lot of time to engine R&D and secondly DV’s rising
popularity as an extraordinarily innovative tech writer (has name on over 40
patents) brought about huge industry support allowing R & D well beyond normal
budgets. The result – an individual with over 250,000 R&D dyno pulls as well as
thousands of hours on a flow bench. Has this paid off? In short DV is probably
responsible, in one form or another, for more race wins than any other
individual on the face of the planet.
Why should you attend? DV is not only a top rated engine builder but
also an accomplished driver having set track records on every track he has raced
on but one. He is also the only tech writer to put a privately entered car on
class pole at an international event against factory owned or supported teams.
He was responsible for the engine development including cylinder heads, cams and
carburetion. DV also designed the suspension and even made his own shocks. He
also did the aerodynamics and paint work.

McCoig built this big block Chevy strictly to DV specs and made the numbers
you see here. That was more torque and hp than the big block
specialists whose dyno he rented made from his street 540's. With a
250 hp nitrous system activated this unit produced over 1080 hp and over
All done after hours with a two man crew in an 11 x 33 ft shop.
At the 1974 British GP the touring car race was the main supporting feature. He
broke in an engine during practice and qualified 28th. As about 8 million TV
viewers saw, the start, with Vizard power, was truly spectacular – he was joint
first into the first corner! He is also the only tech writer in the world
who can explain to a rank beginner how to build a race engine that then goes out
and beats the pro’s to the finish line! That is something he has done on
numerous occasions. Fast and legal? Sure – this is a man who has even
protested his own cars to prove their race dominating speed is all legal!
This is just a few of many such accomplishments that make DV the #1 source of
performance and race winning tech.

you will not get from any other source!
What will I need for lecture notes? Not much. The seminar lecture
notes are the most complete and comprehensive you will ever get. These are in
the form of DV’s book ‘How to Build Horsepower’ Copies can be had at the seminar
at a 20% discount. What will you learn from this seminar? The subject umbrella
for this seminar is one we are all told is the most important ingredient for
maximizing engine output but is never talked about because it is considered such
an elusive subject.
subject is ‘Combinations’. It’s well known that success means having the right
combination of parts but no one ever tells you how to arrive at a working
combination at square one. DV covers that in great and easily understood detail
so first time around engines truly crank out the hoped for power. Within this
framework DV deals with such subjects as:-
1) The little known secret of making 3 hp per cubic inch (175 per liter)
from a normally aspirated, 2 valve, carbureted engine.
2) How the top two plane intake manufacturers are giving the wrong advice
on carburetion (that’s a 20 hp tip right there)
3) Why 99% of head specialists are incorrectly flowing heads and intake
4) Saving $9500 on a flow bench purchase – by building a super pro
capability bench that will do the job right - for under $150.
5) A totally new hyper-accurate cam spec system that will spec a cam for
your motor in under 5 minute to better than 98.5% optimal first time around
(industry average is currently about 90%)
6) What really goes on in running cylinder? (Live in-cylinder and port
pressure measurement demonstrations).
7) How to pick up power by incorporating an air filter on your race engine
– and extend it’s life!
8) The truth about low resistance plug cables.
The subject list numbers in the hundreds and will absorb you for the entire two
