You need the adjustable pedestal mount ones not the regular Pedistal ones (if you get the regular ones you in the same boat as with the stock ones) the adjustable ones are in the $400 range and you will not need guide plates or studs. Randy Malick should be able to get you the correct ones.

Is that Lunati cam a flat tappet deal? If so, just use hydraulic lifters on it until you can do the upgrade to a solid lifter

Possibly getting hooked up with some stud mounts for cheap, found studs that will work as well. If not then its time for a new cam setup.

And Shmitty, your saying break it in with hydraulic lifters and run em? I kept looking online about that and I'd love if I could but it sounds like the ramps are different on the cams and you could collapse a lifter Suspect

Find out what the cam is exactly and call Lunati and ask for their advice on whether or not it's compatable with hydraulic lifters.

Justin what you need is Steeda Adjustable shaft mount rockers, 199-ST202AX same as what I have here they fit gt40P heads for a solid cam.

I can't find any Steeda rocker arms for sale, I couldn't find them on their website either. So if I can't find those, I could run a set of stud mount rollers with polylocks and be fine right? I also found a set shaft mounts but it looks like they are procomp brand, which I've yet to hear anything good about Neutral

But I will call lunati right now and also call the guy I know with the rocker arms to see what the deal is.

The procomp stuff does not have a good reputation.

You probably still need to machine the heads for them.
