I have already stated hydraulic lifters are best for street use.
Tuners are not my area, perhaps someone else can offer advice. Couple things. Typically, using a tuner will bring with it a need to run higher octane gas, meaning more cost. Also, a ticking lifter doesn't mean it's bad. It could be fixed with a round of Marvel Mystery oil or Seafoam. It may not even be a lifter. An exhuast leak can sound just like a sticky lifter.

I wouldn't be so quick to think they're shot. Mine have over 300K miles on them, still going strong. They're pretty hard to kill, but if you're dead set on it....

Best is a relative term but yeah, if you want to make computer mods, the 265 is ghe way to go. I'd suggested the 264 thinking, at that point, that you were staying essentially stock on the computer.

I think I'm just goin to pass on the whole cam project just way to much money to spend right now and to much modding to do just for it to work maybe later after I save the money and talk myself into a 408 stroker kit so I believe for now I'll just worry about my lifters so back on subject lol just lifters I searched online at summit racing and saw they carry performance lifters has anyone ran them how'd they turn out and did they come with any hp/torque performance gains if so where at low high or overall end range

all you can run is a stock type replacement. your not going to gain much of anything from just a new set of lifters.

do some research to see what lifters you can drop right in with your stock valve train.

i bought some of those Rhodes VMaxx lifters for my Dak. they will not work with the stock rocker arms. i have Crane Gold adjustable roller rockers. you need the adjust-ability to set the correct lash.
