Around the time i hit 5th gear i can feel a sort of ticking feeling on my foot in the gas pedal when i accelerate. Not when i let go of it but when i depress the gas.

It's not loud, and its not like a hard ticking feeling.

But it is there when i hit the gas pedal....any clues?

Sounds almost like detonation i had a 77 olds delta 88 that did that and i put 89 octane in it and it fixed it. I guess you could try that and see if it helps.

i had the ticking feeling too both in my zx3 and svt, ive just grown used to it. Pretty sure its just the way the accelerator pedal assembly is designed.
