So my lifters were quiet. Always were. however after I installed my cams, they were instantly noisy. It takes a LOT of driving before they quiet down and sometimes they don't.

Would it make since for them to finally start "talking" now? Or is this just some big coincidence?

I have. 2.5 days now.

Heres what happens. I start my car(barely, still havn't firgured that one out yet.) and it's very quiet. As it warms up the lifters get very noisy and stay that way until I drive it for about 5 miles and then they are quiet. Does this everytime I start it.

Oh well.

Are you using dino or synthetic? I have heard of people having noise problems as the oil undergoes a viscosity change, which would explain the quiet loud quiet problem.
