Sr20det redtop odd noise

My sr20det swapped 240 has a odd tapping noise. It is most loudest when the engine is cold. It is heard the loudest when in 3rd+ gear between 2800-4000rpm and with light acceleration. It isn't very loud at WOT. The sound is also louder than is the video. It dampened it a little. Any suggestions?

Twin Scroll GT3071R SR20DET: New Tomei "Solid Lifter" Type Camshafts
In my last video, I had a lot of valve train noise! It turns out that back in 2009 when I ordered "solid lifter" type cams, I was shipped "hydraulic lifter" cams. Hydraulic lifters give due to oil pressure keeping them extended, so the ramp angle on the cam lobs can be more aggressive. With solid lifters, you have to "ease off" the lobe when it is coming back down so it "sets" the valves closed gently. I was running solid lifters with the wrong cams, so that was the cause of the excessive lifter noise! All is well now! Stay tuned for a Dyno video and a lot more power!!!
