RA IV cam and lifter combo

Hi fellas, I am building a 71 400 with a RA IV cam ( edelbrock 7157) 231 Intake/240 Exhaust. I was thinking of getting rhoads lifters but im not sure if they are worth it. I have a pair of not so great 73 cc heads im using till i find some 6X heads. Anyone have any suggestions? Anyone running this cam and lifter combo? Or what other lifters has anyone used with good results?
Thanks in advance

Could you tell us more about the car and how you plan to use it? (Trans, gear ratio, etc.)

Ill be using a TH400, i think its a stock stall converter for now and 3.90s in the back. Ima be driving the car on weekends and my goal is to have a 12 second car. All i need to be satisfied. The heads are some crappy #11 heads that have had some work done to them. So theyll be ok while i get some better heads. I'm just kinda stuck on the lifter part. I am kinda of a newbie as you can tell, so any advise helps fellas.
64 LeMans by the way. I'll post some pics soon.

Thanks again
