    search it on the site if you want but ticking from these engines is perfectly normal...depending on how loud i guess but my engine ticks.

    I'm pretty sure it's piston slap. I guess this engine is known for having that. Do you let it warm up before you drive it?

    you could be hearing alittle spark knock.. what grade fuel you running.. mine does it on 87, i used 89 and it hasnt done it since.

    piston slap is normal if it has a few miles on it... 150K is enough. let your truck warm up a little before you dive.. i give mine about 60seconds

    is the tick constant or does it go away after a few seconds of taking off...also does the ticking sound speed up with acceleration...
