Those are odd sized ports, leads me to believe they were "ported" that way by someone to fit some intake that was on hand- the ports size doesn't match up to any common Edelbrock intakes, for instance.

Most probably, hand fitting an intake to these heads is going to be required. To just say the ports are "X by Y" in size neglects to say how far above the bolt holes' centerline the ports are, i.e. a similarly sized intake might be too tall "above" the bolt centerline, but too short "below" the c/l, if you follow.

What you might be able to do is use a gasket cut to match the head ports, to provide a template for matching an intake to the head.

Fel-Pro #1205 will fit with a little trimming of the height of the opening, it is 2.09" and is 1.28" wide. Fel-Pro #1206 is tall enough(2.28") and wider than needed(1.34) but works and seals fine.

You're not going to find a gasket the exact size you listed.

I didn't know PC heads called for a special intake Did they? What are all the specs of your engine, Intended use. If it has been ported whatever you buy will need to be port matched anyway.JMO
You are wanting a intake right?

I've got the gaskets that are needed for both sides the heads are from what I've found out are a medium race port head finding an intake to match is proving to be a challange have found one that is close to what I need is a victor jr cut to fit a 1205 was looking for one to fit the 1206 gasket that way I had more room for improvement later on

I'm thinking the heads have been "worked on".

Any gasket- as long as it is smaller than the head's ports, even a stock port size gasket- will work for making a template, as long as it is a paper/fiber type w/o a metal cladding or core (that would make trimming it to size difficult).

This template is then used to match an intake of the type wanted, to those odd-sized heads.

Finding an exact match in an intake gasket off the shelf ain't happening, like has been said.

Most aftermarket intakes come with a 1205 size opening, it is up to the end user to make the manifold ports bigger if needed(porting, port matching).

You can get the Victor Jr and the Super Victor CNC machined from Edelbrock for the 1206 size, but it is pricey. I think the Performer RPM and Air Gap are available from Edelbrock the same way, but I'm not sure

Two months ago I had a similar problem with aftermkt aluminum heads. These had both the regular and the Vortec intake pattern

I ended up using Pro Products intake gaskets and an Edelbrock tall "X" type intake. I bought both a Vortec Victor style and a regular "raised runner" Victor style. Numbers escape me at the moment. But, if I can remember, I will get numbers off sales invoice info.
