You'll probably be disappointed if you install a multi-port with OEM '95 heads. It's my understanding, the $1K+ Edlebrock was the 50-state legal multi-port for the 1987-95 TBIs. Not too long ago, if you wanted to go to vortec heads, there was no easy way to stay 50-state legal. Edlebrock was one of the few exceptions. If you were serious enough to go with the new heads, then the Edlebrock induction was was a logical extension. Now there are other options available to the 1987-95 TBI crowd.
Have you considered going to Votrec heads without the expense of the Eldebrock's or Holley's multi-port conversions to accommodate a EGR? GM Performance Parts has a TBI manifold (P/N 12496821) that fits vortec heads and accepts an EGR.
TBI manifold $340 + vortec heads $600 = $940. Of course, you can always go vortex and multi-port.

Eldebrock makes several versions of the 'Performer' intake manifold. I assume you're talking about #3704, the emissions legal one for 1987-95 305 & 350s with TBI and EGR. I've heard nothing bad about this unit used alone or in conjunction with Edlebrock's heads, cam and chip. But, remember this manifold is for the pre-Vortec heads, and Edlebrock's 'Performer' heads are twice the price of GM PP Vortec heads.Yes, the 'Performer' heads are aluminum and very nice, but is the Edlebrock set up worth $500 more than the GM's Vortec EGR manifold and CI heads? It all depends on your priorities.
