CompCams screw in studs #4542-16 and guide plates #4825-8. Then you could use any chevy style roller rockers. Again, note those studs are 3/8". The stock Magnums are 5/16". So, there's a little work there. If you're not going wild with a cam swap, the stud upgrade isn't really cost-effective and you'd probably come out cheaper (all added up) just getting the (more costly) Mopar-specific ones for stock studs.

Harland sharp.

If you never plan on getting a cam, get the non adjustable roller rockers.

Get the 1.7 ratio. Gives a bit more lift and duration from the higher ratio.

I put a set on my 3.9 (318 minus two cylinders) - really woke the truck up. Best mod, period; for that series of engines.

You don't need the stud / guide plate / etc conversion, if you are keeping the stock rev limiter.
