The Good Ol Coyote Tick / Loss Of Power

First off I'm new to the forum so thanks guys for hosting an awesome sight.

My Mustang has developed a tick. It's not the BBQ tick that I've read so much about. It's a steady tick similar to a lifter tick. I've tried to nail it down to a specific cylinder by disconnecting the power to each cylinder via the coils. I've been told it's normal for our cars because of direct port and noisey engines.

Well from a dig my mustang has always been wickedly fast and from around a 60 roll getting on it. Well from 20-40 rolls lately it seems super weak. Didn't think much of it until today when some random guy at a gas station wanted to race from a roll. Super random and I shouldn't be racing on the street I know. Well from a 40 roll we were dead even and he had a stock GTP Grand Prix. Didn't even feel what seems like the normal "powerband" where my RPMs just fly by. While I'm aware some pulls can be weak I just seem to have a weak spot in that MPH range and that car is pushing like MAYBE 250ish

Car is still under warranty

Take it to your dealer because you have something 'major' going on. There isn't a 100% stock Grand Prix GTP in the 'world' that will run with my Mustang. I only have a V6 :(

The more I think about it, it has a lot to do with it being an auto also and my rolling from roughly 3rd gear is super weak but I'll see what ford tells me tomorrow. Might add a Bama tune when the warranty runs out
