I must say that your PARTS WANTED list is kinda oxy moroned.

well, a "hi po cam for a 305" isn't really worth getting. I mean, unless you are stepping up the 8.5:1 compression ratio AND changing the heads, a 'hi po cam for a 305" isn't goin to do shit for you except destroy any and all low end the car might have had. It'll be a dog and not at all fun to drive. Even if you "matched" it all with a lower rear end gear, high stall, headers, intake, carb, etc....you're still limited by those suck ass flowing heads and low compression ratio.
Consider a 350 swap :)

oh i am. i said 305, because i was HOPING to get something slightly better than stock. I knew that id be getting random ims from people with ridiculous cams with far too much lift and duration for a 305 if i just said "cam needed".
I need alot of things joe, but me putting "400 shortblock wanted" to be getting pms from people in cali with a fresh shortblock wouldnt be helping me out all that much.

fyi, my monte came stock with 9+:1 compression, a decent corvette cam, and camaro crossfire heads. given some decent heads, the 305 wouldnt be considered the shitbox that it is.
