some people cut to many corners and buy poor quality parts.
I think hot rodding and do it yourself is more effective when time and effort are spent on quality care of assembly.Those "free" horse power are hard to comeby but its your time.
Lots of quality and inexpensive factory parts can be reused to make a strong 307. the 307 is just a stroker 283,,, for horse power you have more potential than using a 305 because of the bore.
for a daily driver truck I might choose the 305 over the 307...
