If your going to use the automatic transmission you kinda stuck with stock camshaft, you might get by with a stage 1 cam but not much more. If you were to change the torque converter with a different stall then you could go to a stage 2 and it still be streetable. HTH

You can't use a high lift camshaft because your 350 doesn't have high compression notched Pistons. The high lift valve openings would hit the Pistons. I suggest a torque cam with 10-20 degrees more duration over stock to launch that big boat Caprice. I had a Crane duel profile RV cam on a Chevy small block with good success. Different degrees of duration on the intake & exhaust cam lobes. It works very well. Your option to NOT change out your Pistons!

I'm proud to hear what you did to your baby I have a question where are you having problems with the 305 carburetor because I'm having some issues with the one I have now it runs but it tends to stall on me check engine light is on every now and then
