To much to loose and really nothing to gain JMO i would get the proper hyd cam and lifters for it if it were me. IMHO I have heard of it being done before but has to have a very tight lash and that being said the solid lift cam will have a different lash ramp then the hyd cam. IMHO get the hyd setup you will be better off and if you like the cam that is in it now get one ground for hyd as close as you can get to the solid for performance purposes anyway.
