Ticking noise

new to the e46 world and loving it. Just bought a e46. In the process of doing the tuneup things and just got around to replacing my air intake tubes. replaced the filter and all of sudden i have this tapping noise (sounds like lifters) in my engine. my valve cover gasket was leaking so i changed that and dried off the plugs hoping this would stop it. Next thing im going to do is mabey run some Seafoam or Auto Rx and clean out the sludge from inside. Get some Mobil 0-40, do an oil change and hopefully this will cure the ticking. Ive read so many pages everynight, youtube vid etc and how to get rid of this ticking noise and nobody has a clue. The hotter it gets the more noisier it gets. Anybody have any insight?
