Closed Chamber Pistons With Open Chamber Heads

I Am Building A 427 For My 67 Camaro. 454 Block Gm Steel 427 Crank Beck Stage 3 Rods Trw 2239f Forged Pistons. I Am Using Gm Open Chamber Heads Wich Will Give Me 10.7 To 1 Compression. I Have Heard Of Piston Clearance Issues With Closed Chamber Pistons And Open Chamber Heads. If I Use A Thick Head Gasket Fel Pro 1017-2 .051 , Do I Have To Worry About This. It Will Also Lower My Compression A Little Which Is Good But I Dont Know How Much.

Closed chamber pistons ... do NOT hit the open chambered heads ... BUT open chambered pistons will hit closed chambered heads
