I understand that it'* underpowered. You need to fix that. I bet you could find a 671 somewhere to put on it too

I wouldn't put that money in a 5.0, not in a truck anyway. If I were gonna spend that money I'd upgrade to a 5.7 (350), which is what I'm doing. Like posted above, the 5.0 is to underpowered for a truck. Don't get me wrong, I've never had a problem with mine, but it could be stronger.
A couple of comments here...

If a 4.3 Vortec can hual a truck around and tow 5000+ Lbs no problem, I don't see why a Chevy 305 could not be built a bit...

we have built Smaller chevy V8'* and manages some nice power form what I thought was a very small V8... It had no problems towing, and was even good on gas... It was fun to hit it and have the other 2 butterflies pops open... Vroom... It had a 450ish lift cam in it, and 350 heads iirc...

If memory serves the Fuel injected chevy V8'* should have a roller cam set up already, but more lift would be good..

For a truck I see nothing wrong with a 305, its a truck...

Now if he was planning to build for power, then I would highly reccomend a 350...

Bue hell its easy to do a set of head gaskets on a chevy V8 anyhow..

If the heads are pulled I would at the least reccomend having the heads checked and possibly shaved, at that time replace the valve stem seals
