    I have had a tiny leak in the exhaust before that sounded like
    a ticking lifter. Maybe you can see if any header bolts need
    to be snuged up.

    A hydraulic lifter that is not pumping up should sound literally terrible, and not like you think a normal lifter tick is. I'd make sure on the exhaust leak... maybe you didn't get the down tubes connected properly?
