The reason i didn't really go with solid roller, I just didnt want to go thur the trouble of trying to adjust the valves and the headache especially for my first engine build so my engine builder told me to stay with HYD roller. Maybe on my next engine build I probably might go soild roller....

Just good or different lifters will not necessarily get you to 7K rpm w/o probs. You should be using a soild valve train, but if that's just not going to happen, look into a rev kit to increase the rev range.

Good luck.

Unfortunately, I have no first hand experience w/hydraulic lifter for use at 7K rpm.

But when I was researching this same thing a year ago, I had taken a hard look at the Lunati retro hydraulic roller lifters. They're designed to be compatible w/higher than normal spring pressure that's usually needed for elevated rpm use, so you might want to start there. Using the lightest possible valve train components will also help in general.

Good luck.
