as usual as great and informative post from cstraub, after all the drilling and tapping you get a possible .618 lift available which practically negates any performance roller cam lift advantage, however you would retain the friction reduction advantage in a roller design. In my case I would only consider it if I had access to a practically free roller cam and lifters in the .550 to .580 lift range,
Though in jag daady's case a race inpired roller cam is probably not what he is looking for. (nice car! aka elegant hotrod!)
