Pontiac 350 Motor/Intake Manifold setup question

I have a 1969 Pontiac 350, TH 350 automatic transmission, Pertronix ignition module inside the original distributor, a mild Comp Cam, bored .30, Edelbrock 650 4bbl carb mounted on an Edelbrock RPM Performer manifold, original exhaust manifold, dual 2.5" exhaust.

I was told this setup would be good to go and now I hear from a few different people that my "RPM" Performer will make my car a dog at the lower 0-2000 rpms. They said I should get the Performer intake not the RPM version and that will give me more torque at the lower end and for an automatic car.

What are your opinions on this? Did I screw up and get the wrong manifold?

I hate to hear it because the 69 convertible Firebird just needs an interior and top. I hate to take a step backwards.

Please let me know your thoughts...I can take it!
