What YOU will learn by
attending David Vizard's -
"How to Build Horsepower" Seminar.
It would take pages but here is a
It’s common knowledge that
a successful engine is about getting the right parts combination
working harmoniously together. For a given cylinder head design
this means selecting intake, exhaust, and valve event timing to
suit the cylinder head and the displacement it has to feed. In
other words how do we arrive at a good working combination first
time around so as to save R&D money!
This is what David Vizard’s Seminars are all about – Zero
Hassle Combination Optimization, -and you won’t find
this in any books out there except DV’s.
Here are just a few of the many points you will learn:-
• How to build a flow bench for $150 that performs like a
$15,000 pro built bench.
• How a ‘virtual’ (and affordable) flow bench can pay off big
• How to make $50 plus an hour porting real performance heads.
• How optimal intake to exhaust flow ratios change - why what
you’ve heard is wrong.
• How the real issues for optimal cam selection first time
around can work for you.
• How to for a 15 seconds cam catalog selection for a 20 hp/20
lbs-ft increase (V8’s).
• How to make the most of a cam change.
• How to build a muffled/silenced exhaust system with no power
• How to determine muffler capacity for your engine not one
• How to select turbo cams (cam companies won’t tell you this).
• How not to lose 50 – 100 hp with hydraulic roller cams.
• How to flow test intake manifolds the right way (almost
• How to avoid the most common wet flow mistakes and make
testing so much easier.
• How to make the most of exhaust pan evac and what it’s worth.
• How to feed the engine clean air without losing a single hp.
• How to time cams the most power productive way (it’s done
wrong 9 out of 10 times).
• How to read dyno sheets for optimal carb calibration.
• How to avoid the pitfalls of an A to B comparison dyno test.
• How to shape piston crowns for more power.
• How to make the most of any CR increases.
• How in cylinder pressure measuring can work for you – big
Note:- Some of the tech you will learn is so far removed from
common knowledge that you will be asked to sign a non-disclosure
agreement so that the speed tech you have learned is not passed
on to your, or any other attendees, competition. There are very
few if any seminars for which that can be said.

figureheads in MotorSport and Engine Building are saying about
David Mountain of
Mountune Race Engines, UK
Hi, I’m Dave Mountain,
the boss at Mountune Racing Engines. David Vizard always
refers to me as his #1 protégé’. It’s nice to be thought
of as #1 for anything but the reality is there are
probably hundreds, if not thousands of people in the
performance business who owe much of their success to
DV’s help over the years. I know that my involvement
with DV over the years has been a considerable asset to
my business. For most, that help could have come in many
forms such as articles, books, over the phone, personal
contact, or through one of DV seminars....
Graeme Dobbe, Crew
Crew member to some of racing better known names Graeme
Dobbe was David’s crew chief for a season and also his
event and road manager for his Australia and New Zealand
seminar tours. Here is what he has to say:-
I was David's event/road manager for seminars held in
both Australia and New Zealand. As such I attended every
seminar and was continually amazed at how David could
keep an audience captivated for hours on end. After
having attended, even the most pessimistic, seasoned,
race winning, pro engine builders from down under, were
overwhelmed at what David delivered in terms of
performance know how, with many openly saying they
needed to change their way of thinking because of what
they learnt on the day.
Up Coming Seminars: 7 - 9 September

September 2012 Swansea Metropolitan University, UK
The second seminar, well into planning, is to be held in
England. It is scheduled for 7th -9th September 2012 and will be
held at Swansea University as their
MotorSports program is considered amongst the best. BL Mini owners
please note – there is going to be a lot in this for those of
you serious about power output.
The last three seminars presented in the USA were held in
Ohio, Chaska (Minnesota) and California and were a very
At the Chaska, Minnesota (USA) Seminar DV officially introduced
his new 3 part break in lube. How this was done and the
excellent results seen has become a popular topic for a number
of motorsports forums. For more details on the 3 Part Break-In

After several highly successful seminars for
Parts Manufacturers, David Vizard is constantly being invited to
be the principal speaker at MotorSport Technical events.
