The 305 uses a tiny 3.736-inch bore and the same 3.48-inch stroke as the 350ci motor. While it’s relatively easy to drop a 3.75-inch stroke crank in a 305 block to create a 0.030-over stroker that displaces 334 inches, it’s just not a great performance decision for several reasons.
Is a 305 worth rebuilding?
My advice is to not spend a dime on a 305 shortblock beyond rings, bearings, and oil pump. If it needs to go to a machine shop for anything more than tanking, just get a 350. 305 heads are worth rebuilding, even for a 350.

Why is a 327 better than a 350?
In the vehicle, it’s more of a matter of “gearing” than revs. A 327 with it’s shorter stroke would need shorter gears so it can GET to its revs, where a 350, with its slightly longer stroke and more torque output will pull a little taller gear than the 327 will. Never underestimate the importance of gearing.
