Re: Balancing and Blueprinting everything.

^^^ yeah ^^^

I'm one of them. It's good to understand the concept and the practice of a blue printed build, because if you have an unusual habit of driving at the limits of your engine, you need those tolerances. Not needed in everyday conditions. Like Rolex vs Timex.

Car makers for the masses make engines that are precise enough not to fail too fast, and as a unimagined benefit, reduce costs in manufacturing, that's why 2 cars built the same day, one right after the other, have different powerbands. Not radical enough, but for example vtec engaging at 5000rpm while car 2 engages at 5200.

The term is tossed about too much, the funny thing? Blue prints are custom. Turbo and NA have difeerent needs and blah blah blah. Very informative finds, thankyou!
