heads designed for solid lifter cams

hello this seems like a simple question but i have been unsuccessful in finding any specifics, but i have been looking into the trick flow super 23 215cc (3240T013)heads for a build im working on that is planned to be a 383 sbc with all forged internals, alum heads, and 177 weiand blower. im stuck on a cam looking for a hydraulic roller but these heads say they are designed for mechanical roller cams. What is the difference in the heads? just spring pressure? or can you still run a hydraulic cam with it? thanks ahead of time

Usually just the springs, if you call them I'm sure they offer those heads with different springs.

Why not just use a mechanical street roller cam.?

They will really let the 177 blower do its stuff and outperform any of the hyd roller cams.
The street rollers are not hard on the valve train or hard to maintain.

Look at the Comp XE mechanical street rollers and the Lunati Voodoo
mechanical street rollers.
use the springs recomended by the cam manufacturer.

These "street roller" cams do not use a full race roller valve spring.

real men set their own valve lash.
