Typical street hydraulic Flat tappet stuff will get by without them.

But IMO all set-ups will benifit from them and yes they are worth a few HP.

"NEED" them as far as to curb potential parts breakage or "NEED" them as far as helping stabilize the valve train and allow making more power...?
Those are different levels.
