the european ford escort '80-'86 had similar problems with that. problem is the hydraulic lifter cilinder burned engine oil settle inside those cilinders you have to remove the Camshaft you will find them and press them in with a little force and keep it overnight in a bucked of diesel to clean them up .blowdry them and put them back in the engine. check on damages while they are dry. they have to move when you aply pressure with your hands
WARNING when you start the engine because these cilinders are empty.your engine will make a hell of a noise .DON't be ALARMED this will go away in 1 or 2 minutes success

A very common proplem with this engine is the coil packs sit on top of the spark plugs with a approx 4 inch boot to the spark plug. Especially when there is wet weather moisture will get the the spark plug hole and when the vehicle gets up to temp the moisture will atomize and ground out the spark plug. Sometimes it will not even need to get hot and once it starts missing won't go away.
You will need to run a scan to determine which hole is misfiring. Then disconnect that coil and remove the one small bolt retaining itand pull it up out of the hole. Then take compressed air and blow out the bottom of the hole to dry it out. Re-install coil and your problem should have gone away. If you have a scanner sometimes just clearing the codes and the miss will go away. Be careful taking it to a shop as most shops will just sell you with the fact that you have a bad coil and have it fixed in the process of selling you and installing a new coil of hey maybe they will just blow it out and seeing as it's fixed you now buy into the fact that they replaced a "bad coil". That is not to say that sometimes it is just a bad coil and nothing else will fix it.
v8 triton is the same motor as the v10 with just 2 more cylinders so v10 or 5.4 same thing will apply.

As per your problem mentioned it indicates that noise is related to faulty valve lifters in the cylinder head.
The hydraulic valve lifter inside the cylinder head.Also this noise is heard if the oil level is low then required.But as you mentioned metal to metal noise in your second comment then its valve lifters.
To see its location.See part number 7 on the fig.Its the valve lifter
