Wink Re: Anyone know about blueprint engines?

Have you done a "Search" on here for them
There's a couple good past posts - like this https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...ight=blueprint - that have info on them.

Good idea to try a search first, you'll get info fast ...

Thanks that was was very informative. It still seems like the people were 50/50 on Blueprint engines. So i'm going to do a little more research on this.

Re: Anyone know about blueprint engines?

I bought a 383 blue print fully dressed this spring. I just fired it up a few weeks ago. I haven't had any issues with the motor. I did have to swap out some springs in the dizzy and set the timing to their specs. I did have to rotate the eddy fuel pump to work with subframe clearance.

I've put about 500 miles on the motor and it runs great, no leaks. There was some confusion on what flywheel to use one paper they sent said to use a weighted flywheel and another says not to use a weighted wheel.

No matter where you get your motor you will be rolling the dice....just hope who ever you buy from will stand behind their warranty.
