What's the difference between 1.5 and 1.6 rockers? Do 1.6's require any other changes?

we run 1.5's on exhaust, and 1.6 on intake. allows us to dump alittle more fuel in. watch clearance on valves.

Need to either drill out pushrod holes in head and run guide plates, or slot them.
As far as lift, just as an example, if you have a cam with .300 lift, 1.5 rockers would give you .450 at valve, 1.6's would give you .480 at valve.
