    Man there are headers for the 305/350 (they are interchangeable) chevy on CL all the time for under $100.00 Get them. I've used both heddman and hooker headers. Don't wrap in heat wrap them as it makes them rust through. Use that new rustoleum 2000 degree High temp paint (comes only in flat black) on them to prevent them from rusting. Make sure you get the right year i.e. pre-1987 and 1987 and newer. On a 305 your not going to see any performance gains from header to the next, but you will see improvement going from stock exhaust to header. It runs cooler under the hood too.
