Correct profile 1968 302 intake gasket?

I am currently restoring my 1968 stock 302ci engine. Problem is I can't find a gasket set that has the correct profile for my aluminum intake. The Felpro gasket I have sticks out at the heads' midpoint on both sides and this spoils the overall look.

Does anyone know where the correct profile gaskets can be obtained and what the associated part numbers are? I could trim my one but it contains a metal sandwiched section and would be tricky to do and would rather get the correct one.

Thanks guys...

Re: Correct profile 1968 302 intake gasket?

I was advised to use a GM gasket on my '69 model DZ engine and it fit and functions very well. I don't recall the item number but maybe someone can chime in with the number.

Great, does anyone know the part #'s as this is a Corvette specialist and usually don't know what interchanges to the Camaro.

Demon,
I am pretty sure that Victor also has the correct gasket. We got them for a Vette engine we were doing a year or so ago.

Sorry not aware of Victor, can you expand? Spoke with Paragon and they weren't sure of which gasket would suit.

Any part numbers guys? What does everyone else use on their 302's?

Hey
Here is the thread by Gary and the intake gasket he is using Fel-Pro Printoseal for the intake (#1205)
https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...oil+pan+gasket
I'm using this gasket too, I just can't comment yet as I am still putting the engine back together.
You can trim this one as its a cellulose not stamped steel
