    engine and transmission recommendation

    I'm sure it's too late at this point, but BluePrint Engines does offer everything from base 408's to complete engine/trans packages. Sorry that someone dropped the ball on communication. I'm always avail for forum guys, but sometimes I don't get the notification emails...

    BluePrint Engines 392 Hemi Interest? Thoughts? Comments?

    My goal is to offer a turn key "Package" with all the wiring...a trans option, etc. and having performed the swap myself, be able to answer any questions, or provide sources to any odds and ends that we don't carry. AND...not charge someone what i consider RIDICULOUS prices for said...

    Hey buddy, big block cores are gone and any aftermarket 440 block out there is either priced ridiculous, not consistently available, or both of those things. The next mopar we do will be a gen III. But it just takes so much R&D, and the time dedicated to the project. Still pushing...

    EFI conversion fuel lines

    I Destroyed a flaring tool trying to flare stainless brake lines once. Swore Never again. lol For what my opinion is worth, I usually run Steel braided on LONG runs where its 8+feet. Since i don't enjoy getting my fingers chewed up. I run the Nylon Black braided anywhere I can see it. Easier...

    It kills me that BluePrint isn't in this game yet. I honestly hope we get there. That's why we have a tester in R&D, and why its going to be installed into a car for powertour, etc. I'm not scared of hitting a retail price that is attractive, or HP numbers, or engine design, or management, etc...

    Emphasis on "Finally" Cant say I disagree at all, but you can thank chrysler for not supporting the aftermarket, purposefully locking ECU's, inflating prices, etc. Not to mention their fly by night, vendor of the week approach of building a dozen of something, and discontinuing it before the...

    We have done LS engines for years. The aftermarket is saturated, that's for sure. Finally the hemi is coming around.

    Zero cores. Used to do a 493. Aftermarket blocks are ridiculous, and the volume isnt there to tool up for our own. We build 50 engines a day....unfortunately as cool as some niche engines would be, something we'd sell 20 a year of, would actually COST us money

    Hey Fellas, Yes covid brought alot of projects all but to a halt. Have a tester mostly assembled, we're just the busiest we've ever been. Its not canned, but not really moving at the moment. Sorry that I don't have a better answer. I keep telling those above myself, I'd have these sold if...

    Running hot after Sniper EFI install

    If your timing was set before, with a ready to run distributor, and you simply swapped out the carb, for a distributor, then yes, your timing could remain the same, and you shouldn't have any issues. Timing would simply function as it did before, with the weights/springs. The sniper would run...

    Running hot after Sniper EFI install

    Correct on the above comments. Seems like confusion on timing control vs non. with timing control, you do lock the distributor and phase the rotor. with non timing control, your timing can operate as normal with a ready to run distributor. if the rotor wasn't phased...with timing control. thats...
