Need to pick someones brains

Right ive put engine back together and in car upgraded cams were fitted along with belt etc etc.

On starting i now seem to have a noisy tappet what i need to know is before i start pulling it apart i would like people to list what could make this happen.

Example if a cam was slightly out would this happen.
or would timing need to be tweaked or ecu reset

it didnt tap before and its a bug bear for me i hate tapping noise
As a point its the rear bank that has noisy tappet

another thing that may be connected is on revving the engine it revs high fast but seems sticky to decrease in revs. Just to add the Engine starts flawlessly 1 turn of key with no throttle

thanks for any help for me to ponder over

Car 156 2.5 with 3.0 Engine
Fast Road Cams
