I would just be guessing, but not much with a 305. They have a small bore 3.74 and a 3.48 stroke, plus only certain models came with 1.94's. Yours probably has 1.84's, they have good torque off the line. But nothing for upper rpm, they just dont have the flow.

i have a 305 auto in my t/a and i think if i revved it over,say, 45 or 4600 r's the pistons would go flying. The actual redline should be exactly 5000.

My wife has a 305 in her 87 Z/28 and the red line is 5000RPM. As said before good torque off the line but it gives up around 4600.
