1969 351W zero decked resulting in 9.2 deck height

Unfortunately, at the time I took the machine shops advice and zero decked the block I did not know that it
would result in a 9.2-deck height. No street intakes are available that I can find. I did find a very early SVO used dual plane intake but that is it. Otherwise only Victor Jr. race manifolds for this block. I can either have my new 9.5 deck height intake machined down to fit or use the used one I found on ebay. Any thoughts of what to do.

You may be able to have the machine shop take a little off the bottom and sides of the intake to fit it. Rick Kirk machine used to fit every intake on the FE builds to make everything line up regardless of deck height or head milling. I don’t recall the exact details but it may be out there.
