I'm purchasing a members 460/527 block, stroker rotating assembly and assorted parts. (great guy)
My next purchase is the Kaase P-51 heads, which just happens to be on sale !
So, my next question is which brand of roller rockers do you like for these heads and why ?

If you are going to be street driving with that much HP I'd look at something like the below link. The Aluminium roller rockers are nice and cheaper but something like these are built to run a very long time. ...you get what you pay for. I have something similar on my P-51's but they are chromoly steel.
Crower Enduro Stainless Steel Stud Mount Roller Rocker

700++ HP is a decent amount. The cam won't be tiny. You may also want to consider a rocker stud girdle like the one from Jomar:

Isn't the weight of stainless heavy on the valve train ?
I'm used to the !FE's rocker shaft and I've never had pedestal's, what's their pro's vs con's ?

I've been looking into the Crower roller lifters. I still don't like the needles preferring the bearing's.

Hard to beat a steel rocker for longevity and reliability.

WHO is going to build your engine.

What does BAM stand for ?
If your worried about needle bearings in lifters look at the BAM DLC bushing lifter, seems to be the go to lifter.

This thread is for rockers, not lifters my friend.

I'm looking at other Crower products as well, top quality, but price for all is high.
Roller Cam, lifters, rockers & pushrods.

Agreed, it would seem to be if there was anywhere that you don't wanna skimp on parts it's the valve train. Just remember what happens when one of those little parts break cause you decided to save a buck or two on rockers or even keepers and retainers... Food for thought..
