I have seen this before it seems that once the cam starts to wear it goes very fast after that. At 30k miles it had a good run its just time to replace it. IE 10k miles on a bike is like 75k on a car so it is that time. things just wear out. I would make sure the buckets are in good shape and replace the cam, Its probably time for a rebuild wile you are in the motor.

no need to pull head, just replace cam/tappets on worn lobes.
