Hi my name is***** you go through all the steps in the manual on torquing the head and adjusting the valves etc? Was the head sent out for any machine work?Is the noise more prominent on any particular cylinder? Feel the valve cover over each cylinder to see if you can pinpoint the problem cylinder as well as checking exhaust temps at each port for a cold cylinder and a cutout test with a scan tool. Let me know
Thanks for the information . Click on this link and review the steps for the procedure and let me know which ones might have gotten skipped in the order they are posted. were the injectors removed when the head was removed? If not you could have a damaged injector tip overfueling. Test for a cold cylinder at the exhaust ports with e temp reader.

Hi Manin, Let me see what I have.... I was unavailable most of this past week.
This engine has hydraulic lifters and they are known for bent pushrods, failed lifters and cam, or rocker arms. Check those items first. Let me know
