    If the injectors were knocking that bad you should be using fuel like its going out of fashion. did vx give you the figures from the injectors when they plugged it in? If not go back and ask them to either give you the print out or read the injectors again. If the injected quantity figures are greater than +3 then you have an injector fault. this test should be done on a warm engine at tickover. as for the tappets they are adjustable and should be as follows: Inlet - 0.35-0.45 mm (cold) Exhaust - 0.4mm (cold).
    Hope this helps matey.

    Try some fuel/injector cleaner first!, bearing in mind if its running ok apart from your estimated 'noise' then its likely to be something minor and i would try the above first!.
