Hey all I have a fast ticking coming from top end of my sr20. 

I noticed the sound was faint. Then before my tune 256 poncams were put in and the ticking got louder. Car was tuned made 300hp @ 16psi.

However, in order to get rid of the noise I must bleed the lifters. I will have to take the cas out and chain tensioner aswell as the cams to get to the lifters. 

Will this fuck with my timing and will I have to retune to get the timing back. Or simply get a timing light and just time it back to normal? 

Can anyone help out and give me some sort of advice thanks 

below is the video of the noise 

EDIT

also noticed the sound is coming from left side of the rocker cover only. Right side is fine.
