P-51 inlet gaskets?

I have a pair of P-51 heads. I've just laid the blue Fel-Pro inlet gasket on the head and the head port is almost the width of the whole gasket. The gasket has approx. 1/8" over lap of the port. If trimmed there would be no gasket left!
What do you guys use for inlet gaskets?

You have to get older, but you don't have to grow up

Many thanks. Just checked the part number at Summit and they look completely different from the gaskets packed in the 460 gasket set by Fel-Pro.
Will get a set ordered.

The Felpro gasket set will be for small port heads. Most likely a blue gasket ?
