rockers?

Hey everyone. I was just wondering if I would gane anything from this set of rockers.http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...47071_-1_10233

Right now I have stock rockers. My motor is a Sbc 383 I do not know all the specs but This is what I know It has 441 heads, Rpm Air gap intake, Holly 750cfm carb, KB Hypereutectic. was told is was 9.5-1 compression. it made 374hp @ 5000rpm and 449 torque at 3200rmp at the crank on the dyno. I do not know the specs of the cam.

What do you guys think?

I think its been proven that the roller tip rocker arms do next to nothing HP wise. If your going from 1.5-1.6 rocker arms then yes you will see a few HP. Personally I would go with stamped or full roller. I really doubt full roller rocker arms would gain much more than 4-5 HP.

I may be mistaken but 15 HP = 38181 BTU's my home wood stove is rated at 70,000 BTUs so they are trying to tell us that the heat from friction on the tips of rocker arms is equal to over half the output of my wood stove ?
