With all the interest here in budget 305's, we'd love to see the build details...and dyno sheets. Can we assume this is the same Camaro and motor?

Build Sheet

1989 Iroc-Z/28
305 (.030 over), Forged 2 valve relief pistons(not sure specs), Comp Cam (also not sure specs), AFR 190 Heads, TPIS Intake, Lingenfelter Throttle Body, Paxton SN-92 Centrifugal Supercharger, Holley Pro Commander 950 Fuel/Spark Mapper, All MSD Ignition (Dist, Coil, MSD, Wires, Boost Timing Retard, etc), (not positive on the Injector Size), NGK 2 step colder plugs, LT1 Headers, 3.5" Exhaust (no cat), Borg Warner 5 spd tranny w/ hurst shifter & 3.73 Rear gear (not sure the clutch specs either). All the work was done by another guy before me and the previous owner before him (he was getting deployed so I bought the project off him but that explains the unknown specs parts) I was getting it tuned to work out the start-up, decelerating and 5th gear throttle response problems. Tuning was about 80% complete (I was getting work done in segments as the $1000 total estimate upfront is alot of loot when u have 4 kids) before the head gasket blew (on the road not the dyno.) When I get it back in order and ready for tuning I'll get you a slip from here in Maryland (as I'm no longer stomping around in Hawaii so I can't just walk into Ron's Performance and ask for a printout from April) Sorry if that sounded like a dick didn't mean it to come off that way. Trust me I wouldn't believe me either if it wasn't for the fact that I've driven the monster. O and it's far from Budget Build as the previous owner claimed to have dropped a total of 15 1/2 grand on the car. Which from the list of parts you can see is fairly accurate (SN-92= $2600, AFR Heads= $1600, Pro Commander 950= $1600, just to name a few let alone all the suspension upgrades.) To be honest the car has caused more headaches then anything though. Start-up is always a 5 minute process, if it hasn't been started in 24 hrs is acts like a baby, and at 8mpg I'm not daily driving her. Besides every part I needed back in Hawaii was special order because they're Honda/Toyota territory. P.S. Any suggestions on some "spark plug change friendlier" headers? It's almost impossible with these damn things.
