Customer q:

I recently purchased a blue print engine 383 carbureted, part number Part Number: 138-BP38313CTC1D

I was wondering can you tell me the recommended max rpm for the engine


ac = Yes

drivewheel = 2WD

engine = 383 carbureted

fuel = Carbureted

make = Pontiac

model = Firebird

pwrbrk = Yes

pwrstr = Yes

trans = Manual

year = 1988


With the cam profile, max suggested rpm would be 6500, you will not make power past this so no need to turn the motor to a high RPM

Should you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
