There is a process to break in the cam, off the top of my head I had a new cam a while back and the process was to run the engine at 2000 or 2500(you will have to check with who makes your cam) for 20 minutes(again not sure) dump the oil and new oil and go. Check for exhaust leaks too sometimes they can sound like an engine noise. I am only a home owner type mechanic and only have limited experience so I would not want to give you bad advice.
