His focus is on design, manufacturing and sales of high performance parts for vehicles. He has designed engines through his company Bisimoto Engineering for companies like Honda, Hyundai and Porsche.
Ndubisi went to Anambra State University of Technology at the age of 15 to study Petrochemical Engineering. A year later in 1989, he left Nigeria transferring to Cerritos College in California, USA where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and later on an additional degree in Engineering Management from California State University.
After uni, he worked in pharmaceutical research and sales. By 1994 he founded his company Bisimoto Engineering which initially focused on building engines for Motorsports (racing). He started street racing to showcase his talent as an engine builder and won his first prize in 1997. In 2003 he was voted world’s favourite pro stock racer with six event wins.
Between 2013 and 2015 he designed high performance engines for particular vehicle models including the Honda Civic Wagon, the Civic Si, the Porsche 911 models, the Honda Fit, the Hyundai Sonata Sedan, the Honda Odyssey and Hyundai Elantra. The 2014 Honda Odyssey in particular has been recognised as a great feat in engineering by different publications while the 2015 Hyundai Sonata Sedan engine is being recognised the one of the most powerful Sedans in history.
Recently Bisimoto partnered with Hyundai to build it’s 2016 Tuscon model which according to Reuters is the most powerful Tuscon to date. This will be the fourth straight year Bisimoto has designed and built the engine for this Hyundai model. The model will be officially revealed at Hyundai’s annual SEMA show next month.
