ONE HIGH-PERFORMANCE CRATE ENGINE AT A TIME
BluePrint Engines® was started 20 years ago in a small garage in central Nebraska. What started as a passion for speed turned into a hobby, then a job, and finally a career.
Our founder, Norris Marshall, built one engine at a time for his friends and neighbors, and bit by bit his business and reputation grew. Drag racers, circle track racers, and street rodders all got some of the first engines produced by BluePrint Engines.
Most of us can relate to what happened next. Every day cars, or “grocery-getters,” were easier to sell to a LOT more people as babies, mortgages, and a need for financial security changed the way people shop.
This shift pushed Norris into the mainstream and his success in that endeavor is legendary.
Today, BluePrint Engines has produced more than 200,000 engines for cars and light trucks. We have a tremendous staff of qualified technicians who have a passion for performance—on the job and on the street.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE CRATE ENGINE EXPERIENCE
BluePrint means fun reliable horsepower that you can drive every day.
Our experience means that BluePrint is the best choice for your crate engine. But more importantly—you want to get that horsepower from a solid, reputable company that does the job right and stands behind it.
During our history, we have continued to build high-performance crate engines, and have always tried to give the buyer exactly what they wanted. That's another hallmark of BluePrint Engines - we build engines for all needs and budgets.
If you've been shopping, keep in mind that most crate engines DON'T come as complete as the premium engines on our site. Only OUR premium crate engines come complete with fuel system, ignition system, plugs, wires, and the water and fuel pumps. Also, know that you can opt for either forged or cast components on most models.
Most of our buyers are spending a lot of time on their car. Spend a little more time looking for an engine, and you'll see the BluePrint difference!
