Default F Engine Intake and Header

In test fitting my intake and header to my engine block, the surfaces where they meet (at the studs) are not even. I could cut and stack some washers on the intake to get a level surface. Alternatively, I could get them milled.

For those that have installed headers, how did you deal with this issue?

For those that got them milled, what machine shop did you use?

I used the JTO header, the flange on it was already the correct size. Any good machine shop can mill yours down. You can also use double gaskets and the cut/stacked washers, which works fine. I think I have some of those by the way if you want them.
