Do roller rockers make a difference?

Has anyone swapped the stock rockers for roller rockers and noticed a difference with stock 302 heads? Just wondering

They will recover a few HP lost to friction with the stock rockers, but nothing you will really notice.

But if you have clear valve covers they will look sick.

If you go with a larger ratio it will give you more lift
and a little more duration, more TQ. For the money
the best mod that you will really feel is Gears...

Use 8 different colors and hook them up to flash a different color when each cylinder fires? That would get interesting as the RPM's increase.

If you go a bigger ratio, won't that be to much lift? I have to get 1.6 because the 1.7 was to much.
My next mod is changing my 273 stock gears to 373. Hope it wakes it up?
