John Satterfield maintains that collection and evaluation of test data is the key to best engine performance. John Satterfield's approach in this presentation will address the flaws in looking at the kinematics of the mechanical parts independent of the dynamics of the fluids (air and fuel flow). Too often many engine builders obtain cylinder heads and then attempt to find a camshaft to match them. Satterfield will present his ideas on using specific techniques to match components to make more power. John will bring forth his broad base of experience and share his methodology of practical problem solving.1
