Is it coming from top end of the engine?
Ticking noise is prob injectors? Tapping noise from top end will be valve clearences

Just had top of the engine re-built head skimed, new cams( off bob). gets worse has the engine warms up.never had any effect on preformance tho. Bust a oil pipe for the oil cooler thought it was head gasket so took the head off, a very costly mistake, i new the cams had ware anyway but with the head off thought mite aswel but new 1s in.

Did you have it re-shimmed when it was rebuilt ? If you have put different cams then it would need to be shimmed to those cams .

Is it more of a tapping noise than a clicking sound? Sounds like you need to reshim your valve clearences

just hope it aint bottom end danny as that can sound as though its coming from the top.
other stuff it could be is
stretched timing chain, defective tensioner
noisy ps pump or alternator

if it mainly does it as you feather the throttle between 2-3k under load then its more than likely bottom end which aint so good.
see if you can post a vid up of the noise

if its not too bad at the mo you may still be able to save the engine and crank.
carry on driving it and youll put a rod through the side of the block then whole engine will be scrap

I need to listen to it to have some idea, trouble with noise vids though is that its hard to pick out noise as it gets distorted over all the other noises.

why don't you just drop the complete sump and undo the bigend bearing caps, will take you 2-3 hours to check them over.
if one has spun you will soon see it.
if all is good then just fit another set of shells in her and then you have piece of mind that its not that
