    The 306 is a bigger cam. It might yield ~10 more hp, somewhere in that range. You need a self aligning rocker arm for an LT1, or you can use a standard SBC roller rocker arm, but you must also use guideplates.

    and with guide plates you also have to have rocker studs put in

    I would buy the summit brand rockers.

    they are actually made by scorpion. the same company that makes those nice blue ones for LS1.

    the hot cam is pretty mild, but the biggest you should go on stock heads is the comp 224/230

    You would not benefit a 306 to its full potential on stock heads.
    The hot cam would still be ok.

    Yes thats possible, with the cam and all of it's supporting valvetrain modifications, and along with full exhaust, intake and tune. I've also seen a hotcam make those numbers.

    The 230/236 is a good stock head cam if you want to just grab a shelf cam.
