Cheap BB chevy roller lifter conversion--like small block?

As some of you know, you can retrofit factory hyd roller lifter parts into a non roller lifter small block with very minimal work. Is there parts and pieces that can be done to the big block too? I have all the small block stuff here, lifters are same bore size, a little cutting and welding of link bars wouldnt bother me, but i am unfamiliar with factory BB parts. Like a small block, its just hard to justify $500 for a set of lifters when their may be cheaper alternatives.

Just found this:

I wonder if i could use this with the same 3.8 lifters(shorter than stock 350 roller lifters) that are used in the conversion of small blocks?
