Will lack of quench cause problems with this SBC build?

I have a 1976 Chevy 350, .030 over with low miles on a fairly stock rebuild. My plan was to install 64cc alum heads and a Lunati 60102 cam to warm it up and use in my 55 Chevy. I pulled the heads off and discovered flat-top pistons .043 in the hole. If I use standard .041 head gaskets the DCR comes out to 8.3:1 with this setup. Will this work ok for street use even with the poor quench?
