O.K., will do.
The basic concept of blueprinting is described as bringing the block into specification by re-machining the components of the block and sizing them to the original dimensions that the factory intended them to be.
Engine balance is the design, construction and tuning of an engine to run smoothly. Engine balance reduces vibration and other stresses, and may improve the performance, efficiency, cost of ownership and reliability of the engine, as well as reducing the stress on other machinery and people near the engine.
Involves carefully weighing and shaping nearly every moving part in the engine.
