I'm not entirely clear on what you are trying to say. Are you asking if you should use the 292H cam or keep what you have?

stock 305 heads can't flow enough to support even a 268xe cam so I wouldn't even consider the 292H, but people have made mismatched engines run okay in the past. If I were you I'd look at a MUCH smaller cam- around 215 duration at .050" if you're running stock 305 heads.
