How much more power woud solid roller make over hyd roller in this set up??

Getting ready to upgrade to an aluminum radiator. Since I'll be taking the old one out, might have to switch to solid roller. Here's the current set up. sbf306 stck bottom end with .030 pistons, tfs track heats, air gap and 650dp, 1.6 roller rockers with a .512 lift 282 duration hyd roller cam. Some have said that solid roller cams make quite a bit more power. TFS states that the max lift I could run is about .540 and most solid rollers have larger lifts than that. However, there is a place not for from me that custom grinds cams, cam motion. Perhaps they can grind a solid roller within that lift. If they could do that would it make a pretty big difference versus hyd roller. Or would it make very little difference because it wouldn't be a high lift cam. Perhaps you have to have more cubes and higher lifts to reap the true benefits of the solid rollers. Any wisdom imparted upon the kid would be greatly appreciated

65 Mustang Coupe, 5.0 .030, Air Gap, BIGGS650dp, MSD, Trick Flow Track Heat, .512 282 comp hyd roller, World Class T5, nine inch 4:11 with Auburn Pro posi. Best of 12.88 at 106.7mph

Your probably looking at more of an RPM cappability increase with the solid roller. so id say 20hp? I dont think itd be that much because you cant add too much more lift than you already have. and custom cams are big $$$ arnt they? I try to help but probably know less than you do about it.

Yes, that's what I figured also. Since there is not that much lift probably not worth swapping.
