Solid Lifters vs Hyd. Lifters

Hey there,
as I mentioned before I picked up this cast# 3855992
396 4-bolt. Want to run a solid, but how much more maintenance
is involved in adjusting solid lifter than hyd? I know hyd would be
install and go, but I wanted a little more RPM AND performance.
Plus it is going in a 65 Malibu so I also wanted it to be in the general
decade performance wise. I am old school. Don't need to go 8sec
quater, but would be nice if this Malibu BBC, Mincie, 12 bolt was into the
11's. Is a guy out there adjusting these solids every weekend? or???
I was looking at the 396245 grind ISKY solid 108 lobe sep, .565 lift I think.
Thoughts??? or maybe go with the equal grind only hyd roller??
Thank you
