Default HEMI Tick

Hey guys i’m new to the posting but a long time follower to the forum. I’ve got a question for you guys because im stumped. I’ve got a 2012 Ram 1500 with 5.7 Hemi with 103000 miles. Well long story short, in the last 1500 miles ive replaced the cam and lifters due to them being bad. Ive put around 1400 miles on since the new Mopar Cam and Lifters and im still getting a bad lift tick sound with the new parts. Hooked up the computer, getting no codes, no misfires, and no problems just a loud, loud lifter tick. Mechanic said he hears it too but doesn’t know what to do because no codes=no warrenty replacement. So my question is what or why are the brand new lifters still ticking as bad as before? I know this is a common Hemi question and probably a question asked ALOT, but i just need some help i dont want to ruin another set of lifters and cam.
Thanks in advance everyone!

i will get a video tomorrow. but yes MDS does work. I’ve been told shutting it off will help the ticking and make it go away. does the MDS system have that much affect on lifters?
