I would take a tick any day over having to drive a oil chugging, underpowered dog like the 5.3.

I agree 100%. After a life of GM I am glad to say I wont be switching back. Their torque management (nanny state level) is annoying too.

A goid quality full synthetic oil changed on consistens OCI shoukd fix the hemi tick.

Took care of mine.

Looks like nothing changed in the hemi. Still has the same lifter part number.
So unless somebody can prove otherwise, i bet the lil tick is still gonna be there.

I`ve had 2 - 2010`s, and one 2014 (all hemi`s)
All had the famous cold start tick until i did the first oil change(s), never heard a tick from any of them again after that. Full synthetic 5w20

And lots of people with the tick say their engines have gone on for many miles.

Just like the 8 speed transmission, I think there are some Hemi's with ticking noises that are real issues. But I also think they are generally just noisier than one would expect, which some people translate into "its going to explode".

I feel like mine is a bit louder than it should be, currently has about 2K miles on dealer oil (i.e. 5W-20 conventional). Now that the weather is getting warmer I might change it myself to PUP 5W-20 or 5W-30.

I wouldn`t put 5w30 in it
If you do, the MDS wont come down into 4cyl mode. If you dont care about that, 5w30 wont hurt anything. You might also see a slight drop in MPG as well with 5w30 too.

This is just me, but i drop the drain plug at 1,000 miles from brand new. Never had a tick ever come back in 80,000 miles

Yep, I had the factory fill changed out around 2K miles. Currently at 4K miles.

I'm pretty sure the AFM is no longer a problem in the 2014 and newer trucks. I know three guys all with 14's and not one has had an oil consumption problem. One has 40K another 60 something and other guy has over 100K mile. Of course they all have varying degrees of the unfixable Chevy shake and two out of the three have had AC problems.
