The Stealth is a higher rpm manifold than the Performer. The Performer works well on stock engines, but the Stealth is better for mild engines.

For a carb, I'd go for a Holley. For a stock 289, 500 cfm is more than large enough.

The regular Performer intake is basically a slightly improved and lighter version of the stock cast-iron intake...

Since you're looking at a Weiand Stealth, you should really be comparing to the Performer RPM intake. The Stealth and RPM are basically equal - pick whichever you prefer or can get the best deal on.

The Performer RPM intake with the Edelbrock 1405/1406 carb makes for a nice peppy combo for a driver.

so either the stealth or edel RPM will make for a fun driver. that means it will still be a good driver for occasion and still have that zip? will traffic be an issue with cars that are fitted out with a mild engine? need to factor in come city driving of course

Are you auto or stick, you have to factor that in also. With a manual trans car you can get away with running a more aggressive intake like mine (look below), but with an auto you have to be more conservative because of the kick down and all that. But if you do go with the performer intake, get the air-gap style. Itll keep the intake charge cooler and in turn give you more ppower over the non air-gap style.
Ideally you'd give a little bit more info such as compression ratio, cylinder heads, eXhaust, and cam specs, then I could give you a nice recommendation on an intake.
