It is probably the lifters. I suggest using an engine flush and I have had luck with GUNK. Follow the directions on the can. You may have to do it every 30000 miles .

I found that if I put a non Mitsubishi oil filter on my pu would start making that ticking sound

Your manual 2003 v6 Hyundai tiberon has a ticking in the back of the engine what would cause it?

Its possible that this ticking sound is caused from driving fast for prolong periods. Its possible that its not the engine that is making the sound, but the exhaust system somewhere. I hear a ticking sound if I drive over 140KMh for long periods. It always stops once the car cools. I hopes this helps.
