Edelbrock Streetmaster Manifold

Who knows about this vintage manifold? RPM range, dual or single plane? I have an oppourtunity to pick one of these up for free.

I dont know anything about the intake but if your like me, free is free so take it and run than figure out what to do with it later.

The Streetmaster was the "parent" of the Performer and specs were almost the same- unfortunately I don't have them handy...

Jeff it's the predecessor to the edelbrock performer so rpm range is 1500-5500rpm . i ran one of those intakes on a 68 CJ5 with a 283 and it worked well

Some folks are mistaken, that intake is nothing like a performer.If you think of a new model Torker 2 but only smaller ,that's what it looks like.Single plane made back in the 70's as an attempt to boost low end power to 4500.If you would like to see a pic of one let me know and I'll go out and take a shot of the one I have.I wouldn't pay for one unless I really needed an intake.C3B is the dual plane before a Performer
OK I found a pic on e-bay,this guy is nuts if he thinks this dinky thing is good to 6500.At 5000 my 327 was done.

Looks like a Holley Z, without the crossover in the back! Very torquey for sure!

Try here!

The C3B was for the 950 and 1050 cfm Holley 3-barrel carb's back then.

The C3BX was SOTA for the 750 cfm, 3310-1 and -2, type carbs back then before they brought out the Performer and RPM later!

And It may not have quite as good a "quality" flow as the newer Performer, but my old Performer 2101 is a very good mild motor intake and looks almost muscular b/c it's runners are bigger than the newer performers if you look close!

"Gas-Mileage" Intakes

Hi Paul, you must remember the "SP2P" from Edelbrock. All these manifolds came into the arena when the "big" gas crunch hit in the early to mid '70's. Everyone wanted some mileage AND performance, much like today! Back then you couldn't even get gas, forget about the price. Thanks, Gary in N.Y.

P.S. I believe Holley may have had the "Street Dominator" around the same era. I'm not 100% sure about that one though. For the most part they were downright "horrible".

You would better off running a good intake. Saving a couple of bucks while sacrificing a significant amount of performance doesn't make sense. Either the RPM Air Gap or the Victor Jr. are the way to go. Sell the Streetmaster.

Hi Gary,

I bought a 4-barrel SP2P off Jake a while back just to have if I have his name right?

These old intakes are GREAT IF you match the engine combination perfectly, imho!!

AND E-Brock stopped selling the old SP2P's b/c people weren't doing it right! As well as the gas crunch, (got us trained for higher price gas), ended.

You can take these intakes and cam and header such that they will work so good that your DCR will become too high and you will end up in detonation!!

Mike is correct- I don't know what I was thinking earlier- but I went out to the garage to pull a bigblock Streetmaster off the shelf to see what's what- and after thinking about it- it was the precursor to the Torker II, not the Performer.

Hey Cali!

Like Pdq said, them old intakes are great if matched up correctly with the rest of the engine. Love them old SP-2P's and the C4B's!

I'm interested in the manifold if you want to get it and make a few bucks! PM me and maybe we can work out a deal!

One manifold I've never seen for sale is the Holley Z...maybe I should start collecting aftermarket intakes since my gun collection is complete??

Now that you mention it ,I have a big block Torker II-2,0 I've been saving for years and it looks like a bigger version of the SB Streetmaster with it's low profile.Does your BB Streetmaster look like the TII-2,0?

I had a streetmaster on my 355 and it was terrible. I'm running an RPM AirGap now.
