Not being a prick, but your not just hearing the injectors open are you?

You definitely cannot adjust lash on a hydraulic lash system. The noise is coming from somewhere else most likely.

well i went on all data today and looked at customer intrest TSB's and there was one for noisy lifters and oil consumption mopar sells a part called a make up air restricter P/N 4856291 that ist put on the hose from the valve cover to the intake i will check on the price after the holidays and get back to you guys. oh and the cause of this according to all data is hard cornering manuvers and engine operation above 6000 rpm

I bought one of those air restricters a few years ago. It was like $5. It helps reduce oil from entering the intake at high engine speed and low vacuum.

Not a catch can or "separator" for an air compressor. It's a small piece of plastic molded around a brass insert. The brass insert has an .020" hole in it. It snaps into the steel tube coming out of the valve cover for the hose that goes between the valve cover and the intake tube between the throttle body and the air filter. There's actually a copy of the Chrysler TSB with picture diagram on neons.org.
