Taco tick

Just got a 2008 taco. Does this taco tick I have been reading about ,sound like a slight exhaust leak? Can hear it better on drivers side .
really noticeable thru drivers side wheel well, or going thru a drive thru and sound bouncing off building. I was thinking I had a manifold leaking, until I read about it on here. Will probably still get it checked out. just wanted some opinions.

buy headers, itll screw with ur head MORE till u get used to it tho lol.

I wasnt sure if thorley used thinner walls or what, then Gadget told me that the stock manifolds are dual walled, and the tinny sound I heard was due to the thorley thin wall.

ever heard open headers on a nice V8?
Depending on the cam, u can usually hear the tinny sound Im referring to.
