Just took my car to the shop for the same appearent reason me also thinking it may be lifters. My mechanic said it spounds like a worn wrist pin ...... bad news for you if this is the case .......recomendations rebuild the engine or buy a new or remanufactured one. if the wrist pin lets go then you could throw a rod. If you must drive the car please be gentle

The cam angle sensor need to be replace. Once it's cooked it will never the same.
Have to consider moving to synthetic oil (Like Amsoil) or remove the front license plate (please check state regulation first).
I'm using Amsoil Synthetic
10W-30 in summer and 5W-30 in winter
Use 65/35 Amsoil coolant mix ration instead of 50/50
Removing the license plate does help air flow.
Clean junk collect in front of the A/C condenser and radiator.
Check radiator cap's plastic gasket.
Get a Rad-Cap
Check/Clean the ECU contacts with CRC electronic part cleaner,
@ 85,000+ miles be prepare for timing belt + water pump change.
Clean / change temp sensor ///// monitor electric fan for operation.
Cam sensor can not be overheated.
<230 F is ideal
I listed everything that can keep the motor cool.
Please rate my answer if it's helpful to you.

I think your sensors are pattern parts and the readings /resistances are not the same as the original parts ,try some bosch units is my first suggestion ,
