is this term an actual process, or is it more of an art at the discretion of the artist? i know anyone with some very simple hand tools can buy a pump kit and get it back to like new condition very easily. like new condition in pumps, as with anything mass produced, has quite a variable for tolerances. i also understand that there are very talented guys with very impressive gains and the track numbers show this. no way around this, numbers dont lie. i must preface im not taking anything away from any true pump pro. i just dont understand whats done to be called "blueprinted"
reason i ask this is related to a similar engine building process. its almost always put together "balanced and blueprinted" when any guy that has a modified engine is listing the mods done. the balanced part is a very easy to understand process but the term blueprinting is almost never actually properly executed in a standard garage situation and what they actually have is a build list of what was assembled, opposed to an actual blueprint. this is mostly due to cost of an actual blueprint, and why most true engine blueprints are done by the elite racing teams that are heavily sponsored.
