How far can I deck a 460 with 10.322 deck height....

Just curious how far I can deck the block without causing intake manifold alignment issues. Should I strive for a .025-.045 piston to head clearance (quench)? If the gasket is .041 compressed to start that would leave me trying to acheive a 0.0 deck clearance. I would have to deck it/ mill it .022" off. Is this going to cause a problem with the intake manifold alignment? Thanks alot!!!james
