makes good reading, and sells magazines but unless you have a couple thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket, not practical,plain bearings have almost no friction when running,

Ditto, with all the extra machining required and the return you'd get it isn't worth the expense.

SBC's with Roller cams are typically only used in VERY high end motors. Winston Cup, Busch, NHRA Comp eliminator. We have a customer that runs a C/SM Camaro here in Division 1 and unless your pockets are bottomless than your money is best spent elsewhere. We run them in that application because of the nearly 1 inch of valve lift required.
