A light tap could be just a noisy injector. Never heard them chirp. Noise is hard to diagnose on the Internet. Your idea of a noise can be totally different than someone your trying to describe it to ...like me. A tapping is quite different than a chirp.

Your Dual Overhead Cam engine doesn't have the same kind of lifters as the push rod engines but no matter what they are called; lifter, tappet or hydraulic lash adjuster, either term(s) is/are correct and yes, your DOHC has 32 of them and if abused, like over revving, they can weaken and cause a tapping noise.
