Just replaced all lifters then started engine. Still hearing ticking but not as loud. Yes new oil yes torqued to specs. Noise gets quieter @ around 2500 rpm I did notice on some of the new hydrolic lifters that sme of them you could compress with your thumb and others would not. Any ideas what the problem may be?

You will have to let them bleed out, this should not take long, it is often a good idea to sit them in oil for a few hrs prior to installing to help with this.
