You have no gain by using steel roller tip rockers which retain the sliding fulcrum. You may also get into push rod length problems whereas the standard sliding tip aren't so fussy as to where they land on the valve tip
What piston Would you recommend? Would kb hypers work? Or by piston selection do you mean triple measure everything?

I was also looking in to the aluminum scorpion roller rockers, I'll see what u can work in tote budget. I might break the project in 2, first build the inside then et the manifold, carb and headers. That will give me some breading time.
