Any recomendations on cam model, carb, and intake manifold for 289. Want a street ride but with a little extra power. I heard there were issues with some combinations put in this engine.

Assuming stock heads, I'd go with a Comp XE256H cam, Wieland Stealth, 500cfm Edelbrock, and a set of headers too.

Is the car and automatic, or stick? What is the rear end ratio? Those variables can make a huge difference.

If the engine and drive train are stock, I would not go much past the Edelbrock performer intake and cam. A 500 cfm carb is a good match also, but I prefer Holley.

cant lose with gostang's combo, but keep what 66coupe said in mind I have similar combo my 289 auto. Headers, 500cfm, but i have a stock cam and weiand action plus instead of a weiand stealth.

Definatly want to get headers or hipo manifolds. I wish i'd went with the hipo manifolds...
