I set them at .022 I and E while hot per spec. They got sounding a bit loud, so I checked them. They were all at .024-.025 after only 600 miles (the last time I had the valve covers off). Comp ProMagnum roller rockers w/ locks on 7/16" studs.

Ok, this is my first solid cam. I don't mind the maintenence or I'd have installed a girlieman cam. Still, I was expecting to need to reset the lash at 2000+ miles... am I doing something wrong?

That's normal Todd. It will take about 1000-1500 miles for everything to seat. After that they'll stay close for 2-3k miles.
