383 Engine build questions

Hey all!

i decided to build my first 383 stroker from a Vortec block. Im piecing it together. I already have got a set of Lunati solid roller lifters. I am going with Vortec Heads on it. I have a set of 062's with new springs, keepers, and retainers from alex parts.com that allow up to .550 lift. The cam i was thinking of going with to maximize the lift is COMP Cams 12-702-8. What im a bit foggy on is whether i would want to run 1.5 or 1.6 roller rockers?

It will be in a race only s10. i want to up the compression to 14 or 16 to 1 and run on e85. plan to run a 4000 stall or so
