It`s kind of hard to estimate the cost, as machine shops in different states with more or less experienced machinists, the price will alter. In most cases you get what you pay for. Call your machine shop and tell him what you would like done and ask for a estimate then you can decide if you want to take the next steps. I looked over the parts they use, and more`s law got the better of me. I wouldn`t put that much money into a 305, when I could put it into a 350 and make more power. While certainly true you can make a 305 run strong, it`ll lighten your wallet considerably more to do so. if I`m after performance, bigger cubes are always better. They did a build on the sure enough ugly ducking, the 307, and made a honest 315 horsepower with it. The 307 having a bigger bore, but a shorter stroke than a 305. The 305`s downfall is the small bore, it some what restricts breathing potential and flow is power. 350 cores are a dime a dozen and usually just as cheap. Sink those parts into a 350, and it`ll walk the dog on a 305. I would only build a 305 if I was looking for fuel economy.
