Because we've answered this question a gazillion times already, and we get tired of answering it. But once again ...
carb ($250 - $500)
intake ($150 - $300)
carb geometry corrector ($20)
HEI Dist ($125 - $200)
Throttle Bracket ($20 - $50)
Return-style fuel pressure regulator ($100)
Method to lock torque converter ($100 - $250)
So, as you can see, it's neither a simple process, nor a cheap process (minimum of almost $1000 to simply swap). And, in the end, you cut your fuel mileage in half, and boost your "performance" by ZERO.
Your TBI car's induction is not it's problem, it's problem lies with the fact that:
1) it's a 305
2) restrictive exhaust
3) terrible restrictive heads
4) restrictive intake
5) peanut cam
6) rear gears for mileage (2.73)
7) the entire "system" (ie motor, tranny, rear gears, and programming) was never designed for performance, but was designed for reliability and mileage
Swapping to a carb should be the last thing on your list. Exhaust for a bigger motor should be first thing, rear gears should be second, and so on, ONLY spending money on parts that will swap to another motor (ie 350) later down the road.
