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.
I’ll 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.
Currently running a warmed-over 302...
Driven every day!
