Default Read please Lifters or Rod ?

Okay so some of you know that I might have spun a bearing or so.

But I'm thinking it's actually the lifters going bad.
So check this out--->
Turn the car on from cold start.. starts to tick from driver side upper.
then the ticking slowly goes away. Looking from the drivers seat the oil light comes on saying 4qws that light will go off in about 20mins.....
Car is able to drive no noise nothing very smooth. If I hit 2500rpms or more the sound will start coming back...

Reason? more rpms more oil needed? equals lifters fail.. to deliver?
if I keep it under 2500rpms no tick drives great. what do you guys think?

Also can they diagnose the car for lifters fail?

My 1994 VR4 I used to have did pretty much the same thing. It sounded just like that. Installing 3rd gen lifters cured the issue.

Rod knock NEVER goes away. Lifters pump back up and the tick stops.

From what I can hear that sounds like classic lifter tick .. Basically what is happening is the lifter isnt squirting oil on cold startup for whatever reason .. Possibly plugged with a little sludge or it just drained when the engine cooled down etc. etc. and as such it is taking a little time for the oil to get flowing through that lifter again on a cold startup .. FWIW I've had lifters that occasionally tap at anytime .. Warm or cold engine .. The tick will come and go .. 99 3mm lifters will fix the problem 95% of the time and if you get them I strongly suggest you buy the quality OEM ones .. FWIW IPS has em for like 110.00 I think ..
