Default Been through some changes.

I have only had my Bu 3 months and the motors gone. Blowby so bad it bubbles out and sprays out the breather .

I after a month of fretting and trying to decide what next I made a decision.
I went though thoughts of the 1500.00 GM crate 350, a NOS 350 Ram Jet. a 1500.00 built motor, and a 3500.00 Race 355. I've been driving myself nuts.

I decided to burn the plastic and buy the Blueprint 383 , 430hp and 450 tq. It has aluminum heads, hyd roller, roller rockers. real nice. That will be enough for this old dog.

I sold my 9" rear and parts and a carb to help. So I'll be on the hunt for a GN rear.

Oh I returned the headers I was asking about LOL

This is Lord willinng. I never know what's next.

Yeah , well the tech guy at Blueprint said my 650 VS would not cut it. I read some good reviews about it . I was going to get another VS but one of my local street racing friend gave me a shove. Funny thing he said to keep my RPM intake.

You'll love that 383, about the same specs as what I built for my 66 Chevelle years back. Ran very nice and had great torque.

After I sold the Chevelle I detuned it and put it in a 80 full size lowered 2 wheel drive Jimmy and pulled a 26' camper all over with it.
