    I have Edelbrock heads and rpm intake. Mopar performance valve covers hit the intake, don’t sit flush. Are people doubling up on the gasket or trimming the valve cover gasket to make them fit?
    TIA

    (Edit). upon further searching it appears notching the cover is common. I’ll go that route.

    Yes, it's pretty common to have to trim the lip of the valve cover to clear the manifold.
