amax injector noise

sounds kinda like a not so loud ticking. maybe even be confused with lifter noise, (for those of us that have been away from playing with engines for awhile)

Sounds like Hemi Tick, but only you know what you are hearing. However chances are its Hemi Tick and thats normal.

My motor sounds like a diesel. It doesn't have a tick. It just sounds like the the old 7.3 non turbo I had in one of my old work trucks. Drives me crazy. I was going to take it in but i know they will think im crazy. My 08 Ford F150 5.4 3 valve sounds like a sewing machine. Lol. But seriously it does.

some say valvoline syn oil will reduce or eliminate the hemi tick, if that is what you are hearing.

Hum that’s what I use in all my Hemi's, maybe that’s why I don't hear it as much. To me it sounds like a well "oiled" machine. LOL!

i have been using penzoil ultra and so far no tick. if it develops i will try the valvoline syn, if it still ticks after that i will get a louder exhaust.

That's because the Ford and the Sewing machine share the same engine :)

LOL jk...

Fuel injectors can be rather noisy as well. With my hood open I can hear the injectors clicking over the other engine/exhaust noise(I have the 4.7L). They are also loud on my buell.
