    Dual plane intake for low to mid power, and single plane for top end power. Now since you did say 305 i would definately say dual plane. IMHO unless you're building a race car there is no need for a single plane intake at all.

    If you want the best of both worlds (well not quite as good as single plane way way high RPM but much better than dual) try the Edelbrock Air Gap.

    I had one on a camaro and my cus has one on his 'cuda we both love them.

    Also if you are running a 305 you could use any little bit of power made as long as it dose not cost you TQ:wink1: .

    When I redo my motor this is what I will do.

    Single plane intake gives up almost all torque in exchange for HP.
