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

You might be able to bullshit your way to the top, BUT, it wont keep you there

Never believe what you hear, and only half of what you see
