You'll have to experiment. You can double the gasket, Fel-pro also makes thicker intake gaskets.

Have the heads or manifold been milled a lot, like maybe the heads to reduce the chamber, or the manifold to match a previously heavily head milled engine?? Or did you gasket match prior to verifying fit, and gasket match to the wrong location??
