BluePrint Engines Introduces New Executive Order 383 Stroker Crate Engine Kit

Engine Manufacturer, BluePrint Engines, is happy to announce that the company has recently been granted an Executive Order for their Small Block Chevy Engine Kit from the California Air Resources Board (C.A.R.B.). Exective Order number D-824-1, the Small Block Chevy Engine Kit enables BluePrint to offer a 383 stroker crate engine solution which has been proven not to increase emissions when installed in your GM pickup truck or SUV that is a 2000 model year or older and came with a California-certified Gen 1 naturally aspirated 5.7 gasoline engine block.

This emission compliant crate engine is assembled using a new BluePrint cast iron replacement block and the Stroker Small Block Chevy Engine Kit (Part Number: BPP38350RA). The kit includes a complete rotating assembly, a camshaft kit, and a set of fully-assembled BluePrint aluminum small block Chevy cylinder heads to complete the longblock. This Executive Order BluePrint crate engine will give your GM truck or SUV a 24% increase in horsepower and torque to the ground over the factory 350 small block Chevy.
