Is a 305 sbc a good sized engine?Weegy:
I'll play the devil's advocate. The 305 is blasted for being a weak, smogger engine, when in actuality it was just a relatively overlooked engine, considering the 350 offers better bore/stroke ratio and more displacement, and is the same cost to build.
The 305 did respectable duty in many, many trucks, passenger cars and second/third gen Camaros, and in some cases it produced decent power numbers for the time, and it was out for quite some time, which means it does have something going for it other than emissions.
Properly built, the 305 can make about 300 hp of reliable, streetable power. While that's a bit tame by today's standards, its more than enough to power a good truck, street rod, or project car. My first build was a 305, and I was pretty happy from the results at that time.
