tick tick tick

I am chasing my tail tracking a tick. Its not an exhaust leak. I've adjusted the rockers 4x now and the tick is still there. It doesn't do it cold, only once it warms up. Performance is fine, just tick tick tick that follows the RPM's of the car. Oil pressure is good.

You can't really hear it up top, with the hood open, but get under the car and you can hear it well. A stethoscope against the pan sounds normal. Held against the rearmost driver's head bolt and you can hear it well.

Running the LS7 lifters in the car and they have less than 200 miles on them.

Any thoughts that this could be a bad lifter?
