I have an 88 camaro RS and i was just given an extremely good condition 71' 307 out of a truck. Besides scrapping the engine what should i do to become a moderate hot rodder with a low budget.

slap some heads on it that breathe, such as a pair of camel humps, set a tight Quench distance, add a small cam like a edelbrock performer plus and matching intake, a new double roller timing chain and a hotter ignition with a set of headers and the 307 will serve you nicely.

You'll have some problems with using the Camaros over the plug style manifolds with the 307s drivers side dipstick block and the 307 heads lack a needed exhaust manifold bolt hole that is needed for those style manifolds.

There are ways around those problems though.
