it is a little more expensive but I have always used royal purple on all my vehicles and have always been happy with it. as for the tick it sounds like the oil is falling back down the head until the oil pump pushes it back up. but you may want to check your exhaust manifold to see if it is leaking.a small exhaust leak will cause it to tick until the gasket heats up and expands.
