Does this manifold need to be milled?

My 454 block was decked .010 and the heads that are on it currently are stock heads. I have a set of 049 heads that i would like to put on this engine but these heads were previously milled .020. With the block being milled .010 and the new heads shaved .020 would i need to do anything to the manifold? Thanks.

If it was mine i would have it checked and then if needed mill it to match everything else.JMO It may work out but then it may not seal the way it is.
Better safe then sorry. But someone might beg to differ with me on this, But this is what i would recomend and do if it were mine. IMHO
After cutting away material it changes everything IMO.

I wouldn't expect a problem, your thicker than factory head gasket makes up for some of it. Just don't use the supplied end seals in the intake gasket set, as they may cause the intake to sit too high and not seal well at the head. Just use a bead of silicone across the end rails of the block.

Yep done it this way before also without any problems.
