Are you looking for low or high rpm?If its 6k or lower,use the hydraulic roller.over 6k you should consider a solid cam.Big blocks need a few goodies to live at higher rpm s
If there are engine builds with peanut heads making over 500hp why would I swap my 781's out for $2000 aluminums ? without a ballanced engine over 6000 it wont live long so I will keep it under , 11.6 is the goal but dont plan only racing want to have a fun on the street as well
