Hello fellow Nova enthusiasts,

There has been a fair amount of talk on the web about the BluePrint 632. Most people say it is a good motor, most people say it is a good price.

My question is... What exactly are you getting for your $11,599?

On their website there is a skeleton list of parts that make the engine. It mostly lets you know that it is complete. It tells you the bore and stroke, chamber size, a few specs for the cam, and the size of the carb.

I called them to try and get some more specific info on the engine.
1. Are the heads ported? They do sell them that way.
2. What crank is it?
3. Type of pistons?
4. Type of rods? I or H
5. More cam info?
6. Rocker lift?
Part numbers, brands, etc. The list goes on.
I called their tech department and was told, "The information on the website is all you can get. We don't want to put any specifics on the web because we change parts so often.". I told him other companies seem to be able to make it work. There was just silence on the other end.

For that kind of money I would like to know a little more about what I am getting.

I know BluePrint representatives are on this forum so I am hoping one of them can address this issue.

Or if someone out there has purchased one they can fill in the blanks.

Doug

Heads have their logo so guess they cast them in-house. They would have specs. That chamber size can't be right.

Cylinder Heads:
Aluminum, 119cc chamber

Chamber size 119cc should be right.

Anyone that has questions about BluePrint engines I would encourage you to call them. I spoke with Andrew today and h was very helpful. He was able to answer most of my questions and he emailed me a copy of the 632's dyno sheet.

Happy with the answers and he said contact him any time with questions.

I plan on a purchase 1st half of next year, if all other plans go as planned...Yea right! But somewhere around there.

Cool man, good luck with the engine stuff! I've been checking out Tri-Star engines myself, like their 383 with 500hp. I've added up the cost of all the parts to build something similar and I have yet to come out cheaper than just buying an assembled/dyno tested/complete engine from a manufacturer. Seems like the way to go to me.
