With rare exceptions, gasket matching is not recommended. Port matching is a good and very different thing. The E7 and especially GT40 heads and intakes have some unique flow patterns that you can take advantage of, but it's not by just making the holes bigger. Do a search in the head porting section here for tips. Do another search web-wide for a good guide by Tim Moss (TMOSS) on the factory SBF heads and what works - and doesn't. The up-side is that you can do more flow improvement with less work than just hogging them out.

What are the casting numbers on the heads? I don't recall there being cobra heads in 1990. I'd guess they're E7TE castings which are standard 302 Ford EFI spec heads.
