trouble installling edelbrock intake

Hi everyone!

I'm having a little trouble and was hoping someone could shed a little light on my problem. I am installing an edelbrock rpm performer intake onto my 351w. It appears the edelbrock intake is too wide and will not fit. At first I thought it was because the heads were milled a bit, but the original intake manifold fits just fine. I measured the two and the edelbrock was about 11 1/8" wide and the original manifold a hair under 11". Is it common for edelbrock intake manifolds to run big or did I just get a bad one? Do the weiand intakes run a little more true to size? I'm debating on getting a different intake manifold or having the edelbrock milled down to fit. Thanks for your help!

-Pete
