Usually a machine shop will want pistons to be with the block before it is bored and honed, they will measure the pistons and hone the bores to match the pistons.
Your best bet to get correct deck height is to have the cylinders bored and honed, mains line honed, and then do a 4 corner mock up and measure how much will be cut from the decks.
