    Response seems flat, no get up and go. You'll also have some tapping or clicking coming from the engine (don't confuse the tapping with an exhaust leak). As the lobes start to flatten out, the duration and lift will become less. Sometimes not detected until you pull the engine apart. If you have a lifter that makes noise and youve adjusted it, and now another one is making noise, and you adjusted it and so on...chances are your grinding a new bumpstick.
