Good feedback. My budget is not fixed but I was hoping to be 4-8k depending on long block to fully dressed. I also like to see the builders stand behind their products with reasonable warranties. This will be a touring street car no racing. My 289 is just not enough. It sounds great but the go is lacking...
Is it your position that Blueprint engines are good quality?
I thought about molesting the original motor but have decided against it and will store it for future consideration. So long block or crate is the direction I'm going.
