If the lifters have been installed with the oiling holes pointing towards the cam or "Upwards", they are installed correctly. This helps to keep the oil from running out of the lifters during times that the engine is not running. If the oiling holse are pointing down, it will cause lifter noise for up to a minute during cold starts.. If this is the noise you are getting, make sure all lifters oiling holes are pointing up.
If the lifters have not pumped up after a couple of minutes with the engine running, you may not be getting enough oil pressure up to them. Have you tested the oil pressure yet?
Keep me posted...
