This isn't the first time this ticking noise has happened. It slowly gets quieter ever couple of weeks. This is my second oil change with Royal Purple and it seemed to get louder with it. I have run synthetic oil for abot 15,000 miles. The tick has been there about since then, just this last time it got a little louder. It was not making any noise at all before the oil change.2002 pewter z28 a4 stripper

If I had a valvetrain problem, would it get louder with more rpms It only does it if it idles or if I just barely move the throttle to maybe 1200 or 1300 rpm.

if you had a significant valve train issue-yes, it would get louder/more noticable as the RPM's go up. I had a popped lifter and it was the loudest cracking noise and would increase/decrease intensity proportionally to the RPMs....so. I think you don't have a big problem. Prolly just piston slap, man. it's an LS1 thing.

i got the same kind of noise it almost sounds like the injectors idk though,
his might be piston slap but i dont think mine is because they say that the older modles dont get it nearly as much as the 00's up

did you change weights of oil at all? Did you check and make sure your oil level is right after its been heated up to operating temp? Changing from a 10W to a 5W will increase valvetrain noise
