You will need to cut the intake to keep a good fit to the heads. When cutting the intake you take half the amount you cut on 1 head and cut both mounting sides of the intake. Example: heads cut 100 thousands intake cut 50 thousands on both sides. You most likely will have to cut the lifter valley side of the intake too. You want about an 1/8 inch gap between intake and block. Just make sure the valves don't hit the pistons when cutting heads.
