289 Intake fit to heads seems odd?

I'm planning on swapping out the 2V for a 4V on the 289 and looking at the 2V intake on it now it seems a bit odd where the 4 outside corner bolts are. The intake extends beyond the angled intake port surface on the heads. like maybe there should be spacers under the intake on the 4 outside corners? Is this normal or do I have mismatched parts here?

I believe you don't tighten the corner bolts quite as much as the others to avoid snapping off a corner, especially on Aluminum intakes.

^^^^ true. Aluminum intakes only want single digit torque settings on those corners as they are unsupported. For the OP, just follow the torque settings and sequence as outlined in the shop manual and you'll be good to go.
