I just put a rebuilt head on my Shelby Lancer and the lifters seem awfully noisy. Is there a way to determine which one
is bad? Should I just replace all of them? If so, if there is performance upgrade, or shoud I just use the stock lifters.

You can get a set of PT lifters as a kit at turbododgeparts.com. They will be an upgrade over what your car came with.

If this is a "new remanufactured" head you should not be experiencing any issues and I assume it has a warranty so you should not have to pay anything out of pocket to correct the issue.

Here are the "Lash Adjuster (Tappet) Noise Diagnostics" from the FSM.

Sorry My bad, with the new format I was looking at the join dates. I don't like this format. It's made for cell phones and looks like people that can't see anymore on a regular monitor.

When you posted and I looked the first thing I saw was also the join date.
I am also still getting used to the new format so you are not alone.

I made a video, I think you can hear the noise fairly well. It seems loudest at idle, I was thinking one of the lifters are slow to pump up with oil?

Raj, many thanks for the Field Service Manual page. I'll check the rocker arms, this is a roller rocker.

Make sure the valve train is receiving a good amount of oil. Very possible lack of oil changes has restricted oil flow with sludge. While in there check valve adjustment again following whatever the factory procedure. I have no faith in any of the miracle products, particularly ones with Teflon as the oil filter will filter the magic beads out.
