    Solid Roller or Hydraulic Roller?

    Just curious on peoples thoughts between the 2 before I decide. It's driven pretty often but not gently ever LoL. Gonna upgrade both the cam and head assembly. Heads I think i'm gonna go for the Trick Flow CNC Ported Heads w/ 64cc Chambers and 215cc Intake Runners.

    If you are going with a set of Trick Flow heads I would talk directly with them and get their suggestions and possible a custom grind while you are at it. My first thought though is you will want a hydrolic roller, unless you plan on turning fairly high RPMs.

    I second the motion on high rpm turning with soild roller lifters.

    The hydraulic valvetrain in the LS1 is very good. They can reliably spin up higher than the stock type intake will ever allow. In order to run the solid roller stuff effectively you would need a high dollar single plane or sheetmetal intake setup on a 7500+ RPM engine.
