If your block has been decked, that means now the heads are sitting a little lower and farther out than stock on the block. By machining the intake you will undoubtedly almost double the offset of everything ie: bolt holes, port alignments and so on. Do like Bill suggests and use the afore mentioned gaskets.

I'm a retired toolmaker and I know what I'm talking about as far as machining metal to try and make fit.

You can also go to the Edlebrock site and get the torque and sequence for that manifold if you don't already have them.
