Check oil pressure with a manual gauge when cold and see what it drops to after it warms up to operating temperature. You might've had a thicker oil before you changed it.

irodri911 has the right idea..check it with a manual pressure gauge...there inexpensive...can you also pull the valve cover and look at the oil flow up top there? even a bad lifter....
