Talking SVTF Back Agian

well 9 times in the shop, and 72 days of resting, i got my SVT back agian from the dealership. its had bad valve ticking, which everyone on here has probley heard me complaining about. its had the entire motor rebuilt, except for the pistons and rods. even new camshafts! Well i got it back, and im not sure if i stil notice the ticking. there is a slight sound, but im thinkin injector pulse is what i am hearing. its not as loud or noticable as it used to be, before it went back to the shop, but its still slight. Any ideas?

Anyone maybe have a video, or sound clip of there SVT idling. possibly under the hood? just so i could hear it, and compare.

..dude, you're obsessing.

If you wanted a car with no noise..you should have gotten a BMW 745i.

Get use to it. I think going one more time would be ridiculous.

Paix...

the tapping is the injectors...guaranteed. if you do not believe me then scope your engine and you will be convinced.

if you don't know how to do this its simple - get a car stethescope and listen to the engine, then place it next to an injector, and you will hear the sound you are complaining about magnified.

the sound bugged me a lot, as my Yamaha SHO engine is whisper quiet, but the sound has no impact on engine performance. so crank up the revs and its imperceptible.

Yes, that is what i am thinking. it had 2 different noises... 1 was the valves 1 time, then another time it was the lifters, but now i think it is the fuel injectors. it sounds like theres a ticking coming from the HEAD, not the injectors (thats another softer ticking sound), but i think it is the injectors this time.

SVT2004 - yea thanks, id apreciate the sound clip. goodjob on the new motor, i wish i could get 1 lol.
