we have roller followers. Here is a link that might help.
http://www.fordtechservice.dealercon...evepisodes.asp

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

The engine has hydraulic valve lash adjusters. There is no adjustment. If the cam followers are rattling or knocking then you either have an oil pressure problem, a failed cam, lash adjuster or follower. The other item that will cause valve train noise is a failed cam phaser.
