383 Chevy Question

I wanted to get some opinions on a 383 combination I was discussing with a friend about, it has speed pro flat top pistons in it that have a 5 cc valve reliefs in them "2" he went and bought a thumper cam for it. We believe the blocks been decked to 9.010. He is looking for a set of reasonable priced heads I know of a set of platinum iron eagles with I believe 72 cc chambers. I dont want to suggest the heads to him if they are a bad idea so I am posting it here to get an opinion on it. I worked out the static compression to be 10 to 1 using a .045 quench with the 72cc head. The question is... is this to high for pump gas. This is the cam he already bought
