wonderful little setup

I am highly impressed with my little 305 combo. edelbrock performer cam, edelebrock 600 carb, edelbrock intake, hooker headers, flowmaster 40's, 700r4, 3"42 gears, and coming soon a new eaton posi. it may not sound like much this thing is a monster on the street and rpms are at 2000 at 70mph and pretty decent gas miealge. Im know drag racer so im not looking for big block power, but if some average joe drove my chevy they'd think I had somethin other than a 305. Im not bragging was just impressed this weekend after havent drove her for a while

What kind of car is it in?

I've got a 305 and 700R4 in the arsenal that I plan to eventually put in a rod built for cruising. A SBC is a SBC, and while there's no replacement for displacement, can't hate on that V8, especially since it does what you built it for. Nice work!

A GM 305 auto is not as slow, as a 302 ford auto.

A 305 with 906 vortec heads solves the velocity and flow problems of the 3.75 bore. Modern GM 3100IIV6 beehive springs and retainers, along with a mild performer cam are, road gold. The 305 has a decent 3.48" stroke to crank up. My truck has 3.73 gears w/ 28" tire and a lockup converter 350, and it lightened right up. The TH350 lockup is on a switch at 65 rpms drop 300 down to 2800. Not overdrive , but something.

Obviously it does not run off like 350. That 305 lump of torque can give you a smile.
