There's probably nothing wrong with the lifters you have. The profile of the Extreme Energy lobes is very steep so it's very difficult to keep the valvetrain quiet when everything's moving so much faster.

You could try try some "zero lash" lifters from Comp Cams, they actually specify a few thousandths of preload. They might be somewhat quieter than normal lifters, or you could just enjoy the symphony.

noise lifters

Thank you Larry for your reply:
I called Comp cams and I do have the zero lash lifters. the garage that built the motor and installed the new cam and lifters said that I might have a air gap in the oil system because this is the second cam with a problem.
Comp cams thinks is becouse of the preload and needed to be adjusted by having the lifters rotated five times to get the lash/oil at the proper pressure
for the adjustment? I will take it to the garage this week so they can play at my ex pence. Again thank you.
