Engineering to Win
Bisi Ezerioha is a race car driver, high-performance engineer, and CEO of his own company, Bisimoto Engineering. A chemical engineer by training, he was a pharmaceutical researcher for years before he applied his engineering skills to the pursuit of creating ridiculously fast cars. Ezerioha is credited with building the most powerful naturally aspirated, single-overhead-cam Honda engines in the world. His automotive creations have appeared in numerous video games and films, including Fast and Furious 7.
Bisi Ezerioha’s many credits include creating the first naturally aspirated Honda to break the 150-mph barrier in the quarter-mile as well as to become the first to do so in only nine seconds while still using gasoline. He was the first to implement the now-famous transmission adapter plate, introduced sport compacts to staged fuel injection, and holds the record for the quickest and fastest carbureted front-wheel-drive car in history.
Ezerioha had a head start on college too. Beginning at fifteen, he earned degrees in applied and natural sciences, chemical engineering, and engineering management. He founded Bisimoto Engineering to focus on design, manufacturing and sales of high performance parts for motor sports.
