OMG! Is that old. That's from the early to mid 70's. Is the Holley worth $70 by itself?*G*

The streetmaster was the Performer 289 of the time. IMO, I'd pass on it and buy a used Peformer 289. Should be able to pick up a used one cheaply.

Do you think Edelbrock would like to forget about that one too? *LOL*

Greg,
I have a 'Holley Street Dominator' intake for SBF. Do you know anything about these? Is it similar to the old Edelbrock noted in this post & lose it's power once over mid range RPM's??...if so, no big loss. I don't have much in it so it could be relegated to a fancy paper weight under my work bench.
Thanks.
Jeff

to power falls of drastically after 45000rpm that is very high RPM [IMG]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG] Now if it fell off at 4,500 RPM then that is just too low.

I have a streetmaster that came with my 289. The first thing I did was to take it off. Now I have an aluminum boat anchor.[IMG]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG]

When the Streetmaster came on the market we had all just come through the "oil crisis". That combined with lame, low compression, emission-controls-laden Detroit offerings made this manifold a pretty good idea. My understanding is that it had significantly improved throttle response over the factory 2 barrel and, notwithstanding the fall-off after 4500 rpm, made more power.

Ill take a different tack from the others and suggest that if you are building a really mild daily driver it may be just fine. 4500 RPM is WAY over the speed limit on the highway and, if the truth be told, way above where most of us spend 99% of our time even in the stoplight derbys.

The Holley Street Dominator was designed mainly for use with stock exhaust manifolds. max power at 5500 rpm's.
It was a better manifold than the Edelbrock Streetmaster

Thanks for the helpful info.

I have a 289 short block being given to me that I'm told is bored something like .40 over and has what is described as a "hot" cam (could be interesting). I'm thinking of using that intake on it. It's all in the planning stages as part of a 4H project for my #1 son.
