installed a XRT pro and 5" flo pro the other day, exhaust and all that sounds unreal and wishing i would of done this sooner!

but at idle there a loud ticking coming from the engine bay, more so drivers side, you can hear it over the engine and anything else, is this normal after tuning? or would it be lifters? or what do you guys think, if i knew how to post a video id take one

Also normal before tuning.

Any chance you recently changed the oil? Usually worse after an oil change.

Search 'typewriter tick'.

It seems to get much louder after you replace the factory exhaust, but was always there. What oil are you running?

Yes it was there before tuning, just abnormally louder, and yeah I just changed the oil on Thursday.

I'm running 15w-40 amsoil syn, maybe only 150 Kms on new lube
