87 El Camino
Thanks for the welcome.
I recently acquired an 87 El Camino with 64k original miles. I drive it back and forth from my home in Houston to my farm near Crockett, Texas. I have made some minor additions to it such as changing out the bench seat for 87 Monte Carlo SS buckets and I added the console. I have also swapped the instrument panel with "idiot lights" for another Monte Carlo SS panel with full instruments. I intend to put it in the body shop for paint and new window rubber then to the upholsterer for an interior redo.
My "issue"is that the 305 engine in its current configuration is a real pooch. I KNOW that the standard advice is to use the 305 for a boat anchor and stick a 350 in the truck but I believe that different heads, intake,a mild cam and headers will liven it up enough to make it more fun to drive for a minimal investment compared to a whole new engine.
Any suggestions on specific parts for my project?
