    the 305 and 350 are the same external casting, but they are different internal castings. the original 305 will have a bore that's respectively smaller (3.75") to only produce 305 ci but the same stroke (of 3.48"), the crank journals are also different sizes so the mains in a 305 are also different...

    as for boring it out...

    you'd bore it an extra 1/8" off the wall making up for the 1/4" smaller diameter bore... which is entirely possible, just more heat, so it would take a while longer than boring a 350 .030" oversize, as you'd be taking off .125" vs. .015"...

    issues, would include but not be limited to....


    305's were mostly made in the late 70s and 80s when the castings would be foreign made, these early foreign castings and later foreign castings as well have different characteristics in the metal itself, and the boring of the cylinders may end with elliptical cylinders after it's bored, or even after being run for a while, considering how much it is being bored

    the more you bore any engine the hotter it will run, anything over .040 in a 350 is usually pulled off the street because it overheats easily

    boring so much will put the cylinder walls closer to water jackets, which i dont know the location of in a 305, but they may be very different than in a 350, like i said the interior casting is not a 350 interior casting, so they need not be anything alike (however with that said, they are extremely similar)

    the heads on a 305 were 57-59 cc area (they say 58 cc but these were also foreign made, cc em for yourself and see what you think, i'm being generous saying that they were all within 2ccs of eachother)
    put 350 pistons under those heads and compression is gonna go through the roof, need to use turbo style pistons with big dishs in em.....like a cereal bowl size would be nice

    lol, you wouldnt want anything over 8.9-1 compression in this thing, with cylinders bored that much, you're just looking for trouble, why play the compression game

    1.84/1.45 i think were the valve sizes, need to open them up to atleast 1.94/1.60 and i've heard of 2.02/1.60 but that would require unshrouding the valves in the chambers... also port and polish them for awhile, 305 heads didnt flow nice

    otherwise your cams are similar grinds, and interchangeable, torque will be lost with the smaller diameter cylinders

    and that's all i can think of for the moment

    okay and i could build this motor to 350 specs and quad-turbo it with my eyes shut. but im not. all the listing meant was it has a 305 but same power as 350 . and all i can say to that google info is, any one who trying to turn this 305 into a 350 is a jackass.. it would be cheaper to buy a pre-built
