Why would the roller lifters on a 1999 Chevy Camaro tap on a cold start sometimes and not others?

It is most likely a normal condition. The engine needs to build up oil pressure to lubricate the rollers. No damage should result. it is not the roller lifters it is the piston pin it has a slight amount of play and when the piston heats up the aluminum will expand and quite up

No to the roller lifters in the 2.8 Ford V6. The 2.8 as well as the 2.9 has regular flat tappet lifters and regular rocker arms.
