Default water cross over with highport question

Ok guys I just have a really fast question I have noticed that the water cross over on the intake don't line up with the water out let on the timing cover what is the fix for this or is every one blocking them off?

Block both passages. Make sure you tap enough to make plugs end in the washer recess. Otherwise they will hit.

It's because the high port heads have a rised intake port which in turn rises the intake and the water hole to timming cover no longer lines up. It's not a big deal, just throws guys off who don't realize both can be block off.
