I have a B.P. AB383 and love it !
16' Panther with a 2.37/1 and a Whirl Wind 2 blade 82" Master Blaster 2.3 (@ 25 mark, turning 2150 @ prop)
The motor is tight at all throttle positions and very responsive. Budget engines don't get any better. Norris will treat u right.

( GM engines are well built...., just not for this application... food for thought; get one purpose built.

Wish I could agree I sent 2 pm's to Norris with no response. Called Blueprint no return call.... Called a local engine guy and all is good now.

You guys are right to complain about us not doing good at getting back to with information. Thats my fault. Currently we offer a 383 carb version, and our 427 LS fuel injected. I wish I could add a bunch of reasons for being so late with the bbc style engines, but it would be excuses and i dont want to do that. I sincerly apologise to the guys who tried to buy somthing from us and we didnt communicate well.

Call Glen Treadwell at Muscle Machine in lake county. My last boat had a 509hp 383 on it and it was a beast he is by far the most honest engine builder I have ever delt with. I just ordered 2 more engines for a few boats I am building.
