Re: how do you clean up the engine compartment?
if you're looking to increase performance of the 305,might as well consider a 350.not trying to be a smart alec,just a far better motor.
in the mean time a new intake and carb as well as headers will help a lot.anything you bolt on the 305 will also go on a 350.
what i did was pick parts that would work well on a 350-383 then transferred them over when the 305 died.
nothing cleans up the engine compartment of these cars like removing the computer and harness(check emissions laws in your area first!)then get out the soap & water and start scrubbin!
oops!i see you are in california,never mind about the computer removal.
