Default Which head gasket?

I need some help here. We're building a NA D16y7 engine. It's using 75.5mm PG6 pistons, and eagle rods, but everything else is stock, this includes the y7 head.
But we're at a point on trying to find out which head gasket to use. We've heard the stock Honda gasket will work. And we've heard you need to use something else (including the Geddy gasket at 200 bucks).Nobody is willing to say what should work. We're really concerned about the valves hitting the pistons, as the reliefs aren't very deep.
This was supposed to be a simple rebuild, that kind of got out of hand. I'd really hate to tear it down and put stock rods and dished (turbo) pistons in it, as that'll kill the compression.
Can anybody help or offer a solution?? TIA.

P.S. I'm normally on the sister site (HAF), as I'm an Accord owner.
