If your ports are as big as they should be, no one makes them commercially.
Get your little gasket tapping hammer out.

We just made a set for the dragster eng refresh,
we got a sheet of proper material from the supplier and made them our self,my boy even cut the port holes in them on an angle so there wasn't a step.

I tend to use BestGaskets - then port them with an Xacto knife . . .

Arman at Best Gasket will sell you a blank gasket with the correct outside perimeter and bolt holes; then it's up to you and your knife.

What's the application of the engine? Having built a few street engines, I find the stock ports do a fine job. Compression and displacement, my 280 with EAB can is one of them.

I have one for a 8ba build made by Best and it is already cut properly but you could trim more if needed. Got it rrom Hot Rod And Custom Supply. Price was 10.95 in 2001. Maybe I will finish engine someday.
