problems with a 1986 Dodge 600

hello:
well, me and my dad are "restoring" a 1986 Dodge 600 convertible with a 2.2L turbocharged and fuel injected. when we got the car (for free) it made a huge cloud of white smoke through the exhaust, so we decided it was time to rebuild the engine thinking the piston rings or valve guides were worn out. we were surprise when we disassemble the engine that the bearings, rings, pistons, valves, cylinders,etc they were in perfect shape, except for the turbo that was licking oil though the exhaust, that was where the smoke came from, so since we got the engine tore appart we put in new piston rings, bearings, gaskets, and a turbo from the junk yard that was in much better conditions than the old one. so far so good, we rebuild the engine, put it back in the car, when we fire it up it started right away, cleared all the oil from the exhaust and then we started having problems, when it is idling we started to hear a noise like "ticky-ticky-ticky-ticky"(sounds similar to what a diesel engine sounds like). we though that the problem were the lifters(they are hydraulic BTW) made another trip to the junk yard and got a camshaft, roller rocker arms and lifters, everything was in perfect shape, we installed the camshaft etc on the car, and it made the same noise. we don't know what to do now the oil pressure is perfect, timing is good. the weird thing that happens is that no matter if the weather is cold or hot when we start the car and that "ticky-ticky-ticky-ticky" noise is there or sometimes we start the engine and no noise and then the "ticky-ticky-ticky-ticky" starts to become louder and louder. is this normal????!!!!!
any ideas? suggestions? anything will help and thank you for taking the time to read this

i don't think so, there is no smoke comming out from the manifold.
the noise come mostly from the valve cover and it can also be heard from the oil pan, BTW thanks for responding
