Valve clearance

Im looking at doing a set of mhs stage 3 pi heads and stage 3 blower cams and I started thinking that I'm not really sure what needs to be done to the pistons and overall motor to allow for around stock compression. I know about fly cutting pistons but that's about all I know of to help clearance. Id like to stay around 9.5 compression but like I said I'm not sure what all is needed. I plan on doing a kenne bell 2.6 around this time next year and will be running a minimum of 15 psi. But I really don't wanna get to that point and have to build the motor AGAIN

Maybe contact the cam manufacture and ask them if they had any problems using there cams on stock engine. You can also look at getting new pistons with valve reliefs in them.
