I think Crane makes cams for caddy.I've never heard of headers for a caddy in a G body.Maybe if you can make a plate to bolt to the heads you could use the tubes & collectors from a Weld-up header kit. Just an Idea

you might want to try <a href="http://www.cad500parts.com" target="_blank">www.cad500parts.com</a> they have a generic engine swap kit and other misc parts to help you squeeze it in there. I'm going to try and put a Caddy 500ci in my 1970 Gmc pickup. Just waiting on more funds to get going.

after driving the 305 a stock caddy will seam like a rocket. I would not worry about spending to much on it other than a good rebuild. A can change may well cost you lowend torque. The caddy will flat get with it stock with allmost three times the torque of the old 305. Just a thought.
