The truck the motor is going in will see less then 1000 miles a year and most likely not more then 50 miles in a weekend. My springs set up with 155# on the seat and about 430# open. I am not running oil restrictors and have been told if not running restrictors and with my lower spring pressure not to worry about it. I have also been told with out something like the HIPPO or Endure-X style lifters the low rpm of street driving will kill the needle bearings. I have never used a solid roller for street use before so I have no exprience myself to guide my decision. What do most of you run in street engines? Will my current lifters suffice or should I get the HIPPO/ENFURE-X style?

On the ISKY lifter make sure you measure for roundness and check for taper!!
