    Can't say the same for abundance or price of engines near me ha but I'm getting this 305 reliable and solid then 90% going with a 350, but might just pull the trigger on a LS swap but that won't be for a long while.

    Update 4

    It's been a minute, lots of stuff went down since my last update.

    First off: tons of parts are in

    Got the Brake Booster and Master Cylinder kit

    Nice new Stainless Steel brake lines, I hope 100' is enough ha

    Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust and some Jegs headers for now.

    An Engine Dress-up kit

    a 355 swap, my friend will be dropping it off for me Saturday.

    So anyone know of a good use of my 305? or maybe someone in the area wants to buy it

    Update 5

    Turns out the 355 was a freaking 305!
    Hate to do it but I had to refuse the deal. Now I am looking for another for around $500

    in preparation of that motor, I bought a new new water pump, new distributor, wires, and plugs. so even more parts are filling my garage haha
