350hp from a 305 ha ha
maybe with 12.5:1 compression and race ported ALUM heads.
turbo 350s and 400s are cheap to rebuild and very strong.
you want a 350ci block with a 4 bolt main.

What type of tranny and rear differential do you have right now?
09-26-2001, 08:43 AM
tranny is a turbo 350 and rear end is an 8.5

NO PROBLEMS. The 350 transmission is very strong and so is the 8.5 rear gear. I run the 350 turbo with a 7.5 rear gear with my 350 engine.

If you have that little 7.5" gear, yes you'll break it. Been there, done that with a 76 Nova. I broke 4 before I found a multi-leaf
