not knowing where you are located..
maybe the kid wants a 305.. because of the EPA laws.. that change state to state.. if he goes into the armed forces.. he might have to deal with many different rules/laws/etc..
I know my 86 SS would fail if the 305 wasn't there.. up untill a few years ago here.. and why the 305 is still in it..
maybe he just wants to be different.. who knows..
I know here they kept going back and forth on the rules.. for 5 years and part of the reason my 355 sat in a corner of the garage..
and there is that fear that as soon as I drop the 355 in it they'll change the rules yet again..
these things might not even be on the table.. but you never .

why would a 305 that needs lower compression and buzz to 6-7k be any different than a 350 build.. other than cam..
shouldn't be that hard to find some 350 smogger 70's heads with 76 cc chambers and small valves to dump on it.. as the newer heads with 58cc might be hard to find on shelf pistons to get low compresion.. how low he want 8 to 1 or lower?
