to build or not to build

I have a 85 monte carlo I just bought with a 305 tbi truck motor in it. I'm wanting a bigger motor and was wondering should I go to a junk yard and get a 350 and take it to a machine shop or just wait for a while till I get enough money for a crate motor. The one I like is the GM goodwrench 350/330 but is $3600.00 If the junk yard is the way to go what should I look for? What price to pay.?Do I have to find a tbi motor or go with a carburated one? Or am I going in the wrong direction an try to do something with the 305? I new to this as this is my first sbc that I have owned and I'm not trying to race just wanting more performance than what I am getting. Heard good and bad things about 305's. Thanks for any help!
