TPI Intake

hi forum, i came across a complete TPI intake from a 1986 Camaro for free. Just wondering when it will run out of breath. I have read idle-5500 is all their good for but wanted to get more opinions. The motor i want to put it on is a 355 with a performer rpm cam (1500-6500) and 441 casting heads which should land me around 9.5:1 with my flat top pistons. Thanks

On a 305 they run out of breath around 5400. On a 355, more like 4800-5000. I'd still grab the TPI for free, but I wouldn't put it on this engine.
