Lay out your engine plan and build it piece by piece or wait til you have the dough to do it all at once. In my experience with a 305 (1978 Nova Ralleye) the biggest thing you can do is open up the exhaust with headers and good pipes.
Thats great advice, and it's what im going to do. But this car is slow! I just sold my 98 GT w/ a pi swap that ran low 13's@103 and im not used to a 15 second ride (14.7's at the least). If I have to drive it for 6 months like it is then whats $400 bucks I cant get back for a little fun?
I am ordering this cam kit tonight which would be perfect for a bolt on 305 TPI
I am also ordering some Hedman headers and y-pipe and I already have an air foil and a 3" flowmaster cat back.
Im looking for mid-low 14's.
