Question on Pro Comp Heads on SBC and intake matching

I have a set of new Pro Comp aluminum 64cc/190cc heads on my 383 SBC with a Performance products dual plane intake (Edelbrock air gap clone). I am using a Felpro 1206 gasket. I was wondering if anybody else is using the combo and if so have you had any issues with this combo ?

I know these heads have a raised intake port, and sometimes you do have gasket sealing problems. I am "suspecting" the intake gasket is leaking and pulling oil out of the lifter valley.

If after troubleshooting this is indeed the problem should I go to a raised runner intake ??? Any recommendations on intake and gasket ? Both the heads and intake are paid for and are basically new. However if I need to pull the intake I would like to make sure this (if this is the issue) problem does not repeat itself. Thanks.
