"Thin Intake Manifold Gaskets"? Do they exist?

5933 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  wildman926
I have Pro Heads and an Edelbrock Victor Jr. Intake on a SBC 400. I was wondering if they make "thinner" intake gaskets than what Fel-Pro offers as standard size(thickness). Simply because, when I test fit the intake on the block without gaskets, the holes line up perfectly. With gaskets, not so good. I am hoping someone can help me(you folks haven't failed me yet!). I appreciate any help or suggestions. P.S.- The heads are torqued down, if that helps......

Have the heads/block been milled?
Or just get your intake milled to match.
Go HERE to see how Mike Lewis explains how to determine the amount to cut. Hope this helps.
