Worthwhile upgrade?

Went to pick up cam after work today, Dad building the young lads motor with him for an 85 monte and they changed direction to a Turbo motor midway through the build, I went to buy his new XE284 cam, but it turns out it a 292H, with lifters in box brand new, they offered it to me for 150$ as it wasn't the cam the lad thought it was. I told them I would sleep on it and call tommorow....I'm already hearing the 284 was missmatched based on the assumption my little 305 heads don't flow....but it seems the same rules for set up will apply, locked timing etc is it worth the cash and with 411's and. 3000 stall will it be significantly stronger then the stock converter and wee little lunati I have now? Have to let him know by lunch time tommorow so any input would be appreciated....
