theres so much that can be wrong, mine only ticks under load, but if yours ticks at idle it might be a bad cat that has some loose shrapnel in it.

na no cats on it but my old high school auto teacher said it could be the ringlands and i guess that means my motor is basically fucked and im waiting for my buddy to get his compression tester
