BluePrint Engines 350 Deluxe crate engine – BP3501CTC1

BluePrint Engines has come up with high output small block Chevy 350 crate engines for a real value-for-money price available now via Summit Racing. These are fully assembled engines that make 365bhp and 405 lbs.-ft. of torque.

The BluePrint 350/365 HP engines are a perfect drop-in powerplant for street rods, muscle cars, trucks, and kitcars. They feature the following components:

  • four-bolt main iron block with one-piece rear main seal
  • Blocks are align-bored, square and parallel decked, and have cylinders bored .040” over to .0002” roundness
  • New hypereutectic pistons, cast steel crank, and resized connecting rods
  • 64cc Vortec cast iron heads with 2.02in/1.60in valves, 1.25in valve springs
  • New hydraulic flat tappet camshaft, 224°/230° duration @.050”, .480”/.486” lift
  • New oil pump
  • Dual plane intake manifold with Holley 600 cfm carburettor
  • HEI distributor
  • Spark plugs and ignition wires
  • Harmonic balancer and flex-plate
  • Air cleaner, valve covers, oil pan, thermostat and housing, and timing cover

You can get an engine that stops right there, or you can go for the ‘turnkey’ version with the following additional components:

  • Mechanical fuel pump and fuel line
  • Serpentine drive pulley system
  • A/C compressor
  • Power steering pump
  • Water pump
  • Alternator
  • Starter

As with all BluePrint engines, each Chevy 350/365 HP engine is dyno-tested to make sure it hits or exceeds the advertised horsepower and torque numbers, and you’ll get a dyno test sheet that verifies those numbers.

This service is something that some other engine builders charge a lot extra for – if they offer it at all. And BluePrint’s 30-month/50,000-mile limited warranty gives you peace of mind that you bought the right motor.
