I would not just put on a set of 1.6 rockers, believe it or not the valves might just hit the pistons. If this engine was a legit Stock Eliminator piece then the cam probably has a profile with a lot of duration and a ramp shape that looks more like an Acme thread than a cam lobe. Stock rules dictate stock lift but that's about it and to maximize the area under the curve the cams typically have VERY aggressive ramps.
