Default roller base vs full rollers

Im getting soem 1.9 ratio rokers arms from intense and i dont know wether or not to go full roller or not. What would be the advantages / disadvantages on both? anyone have a clue.
From ym previous experiences the reg rockers last a log time and are cheaper but cause added stress on parts. However teh full rollers are easier on parts cost alot more but the rockers themselves wear out. maybee im wrong i dont know. Im still reading about these things. Either way I wil have new ROCKERS in my bonny by the end of august.
btw: the zzp throttle body was a lil too much for my blood 400 bucks :( i think il port n polish my own throttle body. lol

well like usuall i finish my own posts lol
Any way it seems u realy only gain about 5 more hp and a little less stress by going w/ a full roller.
Also I was wrong about the throttle body it only cost 160 + core the 400 dollar one is for teh GTP'* just to let u know.
SO to update yall this is what im doing... zzp stage 1 throttle body, and either zzp rockers or intense 1.9'* (still not sure but ill get one of them) all of this will be in b4 sept 14th.

Awesome. Have you put your car on a dyno? If not it would be great to get real world results.

TY
