Do you know if the proper oil gallery plugs are installed in the front oil gallery holes?  Those need to be the pointy or tapered head plugs.  The front passenger is the critical one though.  If you use a flat head plug you can block the oil flow to the lifters...  See pics below that I hijacked from Paul Kane's website.

OK Shell, Let him run it instead of taking it apart and finding whats really  wrong, and adding thinner oil,lol
I don't really care what he does to find the problem. There is absolutely NO reason to run 20-50 oil, especially with hydraulics. This is 2017, not 1975.

But the noise comes and goes. Oil pressure at idle is 35-38 psi and driving at 3000 rpm oil pressure is 50-55 psi steady.
What I have done to try and fix noise. This is a front sump oil pan.
Installed windage tray
Installed baffles in oil pan
Increased capacity of oil pan to 10 quarts
All internal parts were new when engine was built
Comp cam, lifters, springs, & Comp gold roller rickers
I am at wits end trying to figure this out, I am leaning towards bad lifters...
Any Ideas ???????????????

Increased capacity to 10 qts? How big is this sump? The formula for capacity in qts is Sump Length x Width x Height x .0172 =No. of qts. If your sump capacity is less than 10 qts after you check it with this math you could have a windage issue aerating the oil. Lifters hate aerated oil.
