Ticking

Well I was on a road trip and the car started ticking. It only makes the noise above 1k. The car has oil and oil pressure. Any ideas what this might be? Also checked and sounds like its coming from the top of the motor.

Is this known to be a problem with n/a SVTs?

Well figured out what was wrong with the car. Tore the head apart thinking it was in the head. Checked over the block and didn't see anything. After not bein able to figure out what it was my dad came and got the car. Figure out the noise was from a huge scar in cylinder 1 and bad rings in number 2. The reason I couldn't get to car to run was cause the valves weren't done properly. Good thing is they put oversized valves and charged me for stock. Car is back up an running. Break in miles are almost done. Only tuning left.
