In case you weren't aware, your engine also has variable cam timing.
No tick in my 2010 hemi truck
Never a tick in my RT Hemi Charger either
Only ticking i hear is the fuel injectors in both hemi`s
My 2005 hemi truck didnt tick either... maybe i`m just lucky huhh
I think good 5w20 oil and factory oil filter changed often is the key (every 2,500 miles maximum)
All i ever used in all my hemi vehicles is Semi-Synthetic 5w20... and no 100% synthetic`s have ever been used... inside all my engine(s) is always super clean
