It might just be the roller rocker arms. Some aftermarket ones are loud no matter what you do. If it makes a ticking noise like a sewing machine you should be okay.

some rockers are just noisy. Valves may be out of adjustment? Maybe a little loose.

Anytime you have higher spring pressures and higher lift cams you will have more valve train noises. However, does one side of the engine sound more pronounced than the other? It's very unlikely all need adjustment, and usually only one or two end up being out of adjustment from time to time.
