305 rwhp isn't too bad, this was on a chassis dyno right?
But it can be a whole bunch better.

More latter,

Like SteveW said before. Not enough cam, intake is poor for the cubes and way to small a carb.

OK,

Here's my daughter's 408W and it is really fine as a street/show car! The only reason it isn't on the street more is the spool in the rear and its appetite for 100+ octane fuel.

Rods - Eagle 6.250 4350 H-beam
Crank - Eagle 4340 forged knife edged
SRP pistons (flat tops)
Speed pro plasma moly rings
Cloyes DR chain
Comp Solid roller cam 35-772-8 286/292 248/254 @ .050 .610/621 lift lsa 110, c/l 106, installed at 105, overlap 69 degrees @ .015"
Heads - Edel Vic Jr's 2.05/1.60 valves
C/R is 12-1
Rockers - Harland Sharp alum rollers
Springs - 195#s closed 350+ @ .600
Intake - Vic Jr. ported to heads
Fully balanced
Milodon pan & p/u
MSD billet Distributor
Race c-4 w/ 9" converter 4200 stall
spooled 9" rear
10" MT et drag slicks
4.5" MT et drag fronts
3100#s track weight

We can/will pump this up this winter with a stouter cam and porting the heads. It doesn't run too bad as is and will win 99% of the street races you might come across (especially the tubed out BBC Camaros)

Your heads are better, but the intake, carb, cam and possibly the headers/exhaust need help. Use 3" pipes to the 3" race muff of your choice. We're running 1 chamber Flowmasters and turn downs.

Good luck!

More cam, and a solid roller!

Forget the AirGap!

With a 3500-4000 stall converter you don't have to worry about the bottom end torque! It won't try until it's in the torque range and it'll run like a "raped ape" Just hold on 'cause you're going for a "bad assed" ride.

Get a good tranny cooler and don't worry about the tranny temp!

In a recent 5.oooh magazine the Air Gap lost about 7 flywheel HP to a Victor Jr (on a 393 stroker). The air gap made quite a bit more midrange HP.
I believe you could pull 10 or 11 inches of vacuum with the XE282 cam.
I bet you could pick up a few ponies by more tuning though.
I personally hate loose converters on the street BTW.....
