Engine is a gen2 lt1 that’s been bored and stroked to 396ci, running AFR210’s. The current cam is CC 236/242 with .588”/.577” on a 113 lsa(hyd-roller). I’ve been wanting to upgrade to a solid roller for awhile and I recently acquired an old unused Racer Brown solid roller with specs of 257/266, .400” life, 106lsa @ 102 int centerline, with a .022” recommenced hot lash. The car is only a fun strip toy, but I’d like to know if swapping to this solid roller will hurt hp or add hp, my concern is the lower lift numbers. Can any of the engine/cam gurus chime in please? Thx in adv.

Any new hydraulic roller is probably going to have a more modern grind than an "old" solid roller. If I didn't already have a comp solid roller when I found out about Chris Straub I would have contacted him for a custom grind hydraulic.
