If you're looking for roller rockers at a good price, I suggest scorpions. Seem like excellent quality. I've used them on a couple of engines.

Rocker arms are an important (and highly stressed) area of the valve train. I wouldn't cut corners or shop by price for rockers. Be aware that some rocker arms will require taller valve covers. Mostly because of the polylocs more than the rockers themselves.

What's on it now? If they're stamped steel, they're usually not a problem unless the valve lift and spring pressures and/or rpm gets pretty high. If you decide to look into the valve train, check the geometry (pushrod length) to be sure you have a good pattern on the valve tip.

Another issue is. Most inexpensive aftermkt aluminum rockers will not clear the top of factory press in stud boss. On many stock early SBC heads.

Stay with a known brand - Comp/Crane/Lunati/Harland Sharp/Scorpion just to name a few. The lower end cast aluminum are limited for valve spring pressures (400 pounds or so seated) but are generally fine for street use
