the motor has stock Q-Jet carb, dual plane intake, Dynomax headers with 2 1/2" dual exhaust.
which cam would you chose for your 305, theoretically speaking ?
Theoretically speaking, since I know nothing about your car or what you are trying to accomplish,
I would go to CompCams and step into the XE-H series cam and stick with a .050 duration of about 210. After all, this is not a 400+ cubed SBC. Note: Your valve lift might be limited by your heads and springs.
Cam lift and duration numbers compared brand to brand mean virtually nothing.
Also I bet you need a good distributor curving and carb tuning.
