Default which rockers/pushrods

i bought a comp cam(xe270hr) and twisted wedge heads. the cam says to use 1.7 rockers, but i talked to the guys from comp and they said go with the 1.6. just wondering why they would make that recommendation, they didnt give me much of an explanation as to why. And also for you guys that are running the twisted wedge heads what size pushrods are you running, trick flows top end kit comes with the 6.70's. Im going to measure just to make sure i have the right size but just wanted to see what everybody had to go with. thanks for the help guys/girls.

you must measure, no ifs or guesses, what one uses may not be what another has to use....and check the came card and see if numbers listed are for 1.7's if they are and you use 1.6's then lift specs will be lower..ect ect
