The hemi tick is what it is. I've never heard one that doesnt do it. The reason the MDS kicking in and out is more prevelant in the trucks is because it uses the 545 RFE. The NAG transmission in the LX bodied cars does a better job of masking the MDS activation. Regardless of what brand oil you choose, make sure it's 5w-20 as it is critical for proper MDS operation. In case you weren't aware, your engine also has variable cam timing.
