If GM thought that it was necessary to have different crankshafts for them, I would imagine that there is something to consider! Might not hurt performance per se(pronounced per say), but longevity will definately be a concern. I have seen the bobweights between the two engines on stock applications be far enough apart in terms of total weight, that it would have most likely been very noticeable not to have balanced them for use in a 305 in a 350 and vice versa. I would rebalance if I had any doubts....
