A cam is good , but if you are not sinking a ton into it, stay mild. Vortec 350 1.94int heads work good/cheap in a 305, just mill them to cc. The newer ls6 beehive spring and small retainer is a stable valvetrain for a performer cam.

A low profile supercharger will get you rethinking the 305 potential. Mucho bueno.
spinn,might want to make a minor correction in your post,oops
