Roller Cam / Lifters in Gen IV 454 Block

I guess I need to know if there are any known problems / limitations of running a hyraulic roller cam and lifters in a Gen IV 454 block? Any limitations on lift or duration with the roller cam and lifters in a Gen IV 454 block when compared to a flat tappet hydraulic or solid lifter cam? Thanks.

Only problem/limitation I can foresee would be getting me to pull all those Franklins from my wallet to buy the parts.

AFAIK,there are no limitations on the amount of lift & duration,although personally,I would not use a hydraulic roller.A correctly matched solid lifter setup will require very little regular maintenance/lash adjustment,and will allow for more performance gain,IMO.
