  1. Ok so I have an 11 gt with the frpp tune and have a tick at idle. The thing is it only happens on a hot start and only ticks for 3 to 5 revolutions. I took it to my ford dealer and they are clueless because it doesn't tick every time, any ideas?
  2. Go to new dealer or trade in for a fox?
  3. Hello Stange86,

    You are welcome to get a second opinion at a different Ford Dealer, also contact Ford Racing at 1-800-367-3778 for more info. Let me know the outcome.

  4. most dohcs do it. its usualy lifter tick. not bad just annoying.
  5. It is best to have a professional listen to it however with the complexity of a OHC valvetrain it may be normal. A:so what oil and filter do you use? Do you have a full 8 qrts in it? That may have effect too.
