You can buy a whole rusted out car with a 305 in it for $100. or less.
If you want gas mileage from a L-30 305 vortec motor install it stock.
Get all the stock stuff from the donor truck. Trans, computer, fuel system, exhaust cats
everything. Install the WHOLE system in your S-10 in stock form and don;t touch it.
Shut the hood and drive it.
But of you want fun, Supercharge a 305.
my brother in law who's a a flat rate tech at a gm dealership said the exact same thing bout the mileage. that may very well be the answer i was looking for all along. only problem that is that i wanted the roller tip rockers double roller chain and gear set and smooth out the exhaust ports and knock down the ridges on the intake ports and slap a .015 head gasket on there for the quench distance. the head gasket will probably screw with the computer right?
