    Blueprint Engines Short Block Assemblies are a great basis for a drivable and reliable high performance engine. All rotating assemblies are balanced within 2 grams on a computerized balancer.

    Features:
  • Cast Iron Crankshaft
  • Cylinder wall thickness ''sonic tested''
  • Cylinders bore angle corrected to be 90° perpendicular to crank centerline
  • Cylinder bore centerline corrected to be exactly centered over crank centerline
  • Decks machined parallel to crank centerline
  • Right and left side decks machined equal distance from crank centerline
  • Main bearing bores align honed to correct size and straightness
  • Cylinders computer honed to tolerance of 200 millionths of an inch
  • Cylinders plateau finished for virtually instant break-in
  • Screw-in oil galley plugs installed in place of soft plugs

  • I thought that the 496 forged short block from blue print motors would have a forged steal crank not a cast?
