Soemtimes the tensioner makes noise when they get old and you could be mistaking that for valve noise. Just a thought.
Don't know if the oil pump screws back out still onthose later model 2.5's but also worth checking when timing belt is done.

It could be piston slap as has been pointed out but usually it takes a while longer to get quiet on the cars I've seen with piston slap.
