Not a full framed car so it can't handle alot of tourque but the 305 was built for economy but with a simple cam swap and intake and carb you can almost double the horse power.The car is light so its quicker then you think. cheap hot rod fun to drive and still turns heads
You're not gonna double the horsepower on a Chevy 305 with a cam/intake/carb swap. Third gens will nonetheless greatly benefit from some basic upgrades, especially upgrading the tiny ass exhaust in the Firebirds.
Speaking of which, there's no way the torque figure is right. Should be 240 lb/ft.
