Don't bother. The stock ones break at anything over .500 lift.
Get the Comp Magnums minimum.
We stock the Comp 1431 rail type Magnums.

The only thing I've rad against high lift with those rockers.You have to watch and make sure the slots are wide enough for the extra movement.

Ok I didn't see Ales's post before I posted mine.
So now I'll change mine to read,
Please see the above post.

also the stock rockers are not very consistant. one may be 1.55 and the next one 1.65.

Everything I've read indicates rail type rockers are NOT recommended for solid lifter cams. Lash adjustment would be a b*tch!

You might want to look into either a hydraulic cam, or swap the heads for some that are set up for guide plates (and standard non-rail rockers).

Good Luck!

Yes, you would need some of those very skinny feeler guages.
