I think this head has been gas-flowed, but as I've not seen an un-modified one I can't be sure. Am I right or wrong?

A shot of the exhaust side be a better indicator, they can be pretty restrictive, Especially the center port, more so on the early heads


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

The early HDA heads had better exhaust ports than the later AM heads:

But both need work. The intakes are fine as is for a production head. Unless you have a flow bench you are probably shooting in the dark. Just making them larger does not work well.
The shoulders around the exhaust ports have to be cut back and the cross sectional area change made smoother through the port.
Your intakes look stock from the machining marks.
