Question RPM2 going to choke me? should I get a vic or box?

I have a dilemma, my lower intake on my rpm2 was grinded down by my machine shop to perfectly match the ports on my hogged out afr 185's. Now I have some custom TFS heads from Ed (high ports I believe) and a cam that will rev to about 6-6200rpm on my 327, T56, T78 (turbonetics F1 wheel s-trim .96 and a 1.15 A/R~for when I want to mile it out) using a 3.55 rear end. It's a dart block of course my fuel system is up to snuff and I will be using an AEM to manage everything. That was just a little bit about the car. I will be using it as a daily on the nice days and drag strip a bit about 12 times a year and taking it to maybe 3 open track days a year starting out (no class specifications for either). This is just my fun toy that has been down for the past four years. If I get an rpm2 it would need ported a lot (can I even get a bottom?) and I will sell the heads and intake as a set as they are fresh and ready to go.

I have a cervini's 2.5" cowl hood. Is there an intake that would benefit me better and not kill my low end on the street. I mean it is a manual so maybe I could make that work for me? I have jessel shaft rockers so I highly doubt I will be needing to do much adjusting and using the EPM along with GM LQ9 coils will be easy enough to work around. I was leaning towards the Vic and truly wanted to stay away from the box. I am just trying to finish this and if this wouldn't have happened I would not be asking this question. Sorry that this might be kind of repetitive but in all honesty I can dig up contradicting stories. My combo was made for the rpm2 but Ed Curtis said either on would be fine and even recommended a box intake.

Thanks guys I am going to go visit my car today (it's in Pennsylvania) and grab some things I need to sell. I appreciate the advice!
