AFA where to get the pistons, etc. from- I'd probably at least look at Competition Products, Northern Auto, Summit and Jegs to see who had a better deal.

You might get lucky and get them to tell you what the pistons weigh so you can do a comparison.

Try to see if you can use the head gasket thickness to get the quench around 0.040". If you get it around that figure, it will tolerate CR and/or less octane better.

It sounds like you got it pretty well sorted out.

Good luck!
