Post adapting early sbc intake manifold to 1987 350 heads

Has anyone out there modified an early chevvy (1955 to 1986) edelbrock manifold to fit 1987 0r 1988 350 heads? Sure would like some tips on this.

you have to change the angle of the two center bolt holes to verticle because they go up and down rather than at an angle like earlier heads.I did a set a few years back and what I did was to stick a drill through the existing hole then straighten out the hole useing the shaft of the bit, worked but the angle of the intake was still 45deg,used a hex sockethead bolt a flat washer and some loc-tite,don't use a lot of torque on the bolts
