We are running a roller cam for the first time.Is it ok to run synthetic oil with a roller,and do I have to run the roller cam button or can I run the same one I use on the flat tappet.Thanks in advance.

Definitely run synthetic!! Your roller lifter life will be greatly improved ! If you using a timing chain , then I would recommend using the roller thrust button . Be sure to have a positive stop against your timing cover , as it will flex a lot without one .
