92 SBC intake mounting

I have a 92 5.7 out of a truck without a manifold I'm putting it in a 64 chevy van, It's at the machine shop being freshened up right now. What I'm needing to find out is I know if I find a TBI/TPI I can install them however If I go the carb/HEI setup can you modify an earlier intake by slotting the heat riser mounts to match up the angle on the heads or do I need to buy an intake just for that, Expense wise I'd like to avoid that any thoughts or suggestions appreciated, obviously it's not going to be a racer just want a fun vehicle. Thanks, Eric

from my research you can just slot it, but someone here will know for sure.

You can buy an Edelbrock Performer or a cast iron GM manifold to convert to carb if you dont want to grind on intake.
Im not 100% sure about there being a GM manifold but there must be one made for marine applications.
