jasper is heading u in the right direction i am wanting to throw one of there turbo kits on my 306.

and with a healthy h/c/i 'ed 302 and turbo 500 rwhp is not a problem with a good tune.

no i wouldnt worry about the block just dont push it to the absolute limits but with what your saying and an easy 8 lbs of boost 450-500 rwhp easily , just make sure the tune is good and a little fat to avoid any detonation...
