sounds like your timing chain, is it a grinding rattle noise? right at the front of the rocker?
could be worn guides, but if you have done the head and cam youll most likely have to live with it for good...

A dead lifter will sound like a loud ticking noise, rev your car from inside the engine bay and describe to us where its coming from and what it actually sounds like...

pull the rocker cover off and run it for a few seconds at idle. may be easier to diagnose the noise. ps dont rev it unless u want to do some cleaning.
