compression ratio

I'm thinking about a Ford 351W or 5.0 litre "crate motor" with a compression ratio of 9:1 and a six pack. Will I be able to run ordinary pump unleaded premium without pinging, etc.?

you should be able to run pump gas as long as you dont get too wild with camshafts
Thanx for your reply Tom. I probably will get a little nutso with the cam eventually, so...
