SBC Question

situation: a 350 block minus heads and intake

Can I throw 305 heads and intake on top of this block? What's the drawbacks of using heads from a 305 on a 350 block?

thanks

If this is just a daily driver without performance in mind the only draw back is the compression ratio that will result in using a small chambered 305 head. The small 58cc chambers raise the compression ratio considerably on a 350 and that could cause detonation and that can kill your engine. If your 350 is a stock 350 with dished pistons you can install the 305 heads and carefully set the timing curve and run premium fuel and get away with it. Also a help would be to run a cooler T stat such as a 180 degree as well as cold air induction. If your engine is overbored with flat top pistons it`s likely the ratio will be too high for pump gas.

(BIG BABY) There will be no draw backs just make sure you change the valve seals and use your 305 exhuast manifold for better flow.

aormz, if I were you, I'd pay attention to what DoubleVision says. He's been there, done that a few times.....
