The pistons will increase the quench (or piston-to-deck) by 0.012". The quench could still be 0.041" if you use a thinner headgasket (0.029") to account for the shorter compression height of these pistons. You might not find that exact thickness, I believe I recall 0.032" being available in a composition gasket.

BTW, I get 10.1:1 CR using all your figures...
