    If they are, they're not adjustable, you tighten them all the way down...

    When installing, what are you torquing them to? Also, are you spinning the motor over a few times and checking the torque again? Blue Locitite can also be used if its a persistent problem. Installing them is easy, as you probably know. But here's a diagram showing the method used in the books. I for one have never used this, Just tighten them down to spec, turn engine over a few times and check torque again.

    Did you check preload on the lifters? The new cam you installed undoubtedly has a smaller base circle and you probably need longer push rods.

    That said, cammed LSx engines generally have more valvetrain noise.
