    I am running a comp cams XR288HR with the link roller lifters, old school aluminum red rockers, comp cams guide plates and pushrods. comp cams dual valve springs. I am having some noise from more then one lifter after 3 or so adjustments. I did call the techline once and they said it was normal noise that these cams make. I have had the oil pan and manifold both off recently and see the cam lobes look good and no metal contamination in the bottom of the oil pan. Should I be worried about the noise? Any info would greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Thanks AA. It seems to be they all seem a little noisy. I'm going to pull one of the covers to inspect.

    I hammered on my truck in Pismo on the 4th and now I hear some lifter noise when cold started. That I have never heard
    before and it concerns me. I have the ARP perma-loc rocker arm adjusters so don't believe they are loose. My engine has about
    1,000 miles on it, sad that I spent over $1000.00 for the cam, lifters, springs and pushrods to have them noisy.

    Yes, the oil was changed after You figured out tuning issues. I only had the pan off to fix a pesky oil leak. Jesus, the Howards are the
    same price of the comps I have. I'll tell you this, I avoid letting anyone listen to my engine with
    the hood up. I am embarrassed for them to hear my engine. I should have dissembled the rockers and lifters when I went
    to the single plane manifold. Which by the way was 100% the right decision.

    I do run mobil1 10/30. Back in the day I ran 20/50 castrol in all my small blocks. Never had an issue. Of course nowadays
    people says that kills hp big time, go to lighter oil
