    Bud of mine just got a 383 from blueprint. Will have to wait and see how it goes with his.

    Did anyone bother to PM the guy? I know it's unimaginable that he's not monitoring the thread on daily basis. lol

    My bud is about ready to fire his new blueprint up.... It is a NON-roller 383. I am thinking this was a big mistake. Wouldn't listen to my sage advice to go roller.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of their engines. Sometimes, things break. Could have been a part failure or an assembly mistake. Without an update from the op, I'm not sure we will ever know. You could try messing/e-mailing blueprint directly but I'm not sure they will share that information.

    Blueprint is a large company. They have a good reputation overall and were willing to respond on here publicly to their product failure. In my eyes, that says something about a business.
