    LS6 Heads and 224r cam swap problem

    Well i installed everything and took it to the tune shop where the mechaninc noticed it was making a tick noise at high rpms at full throttle.

Any ideas on what else it could be...

    I have the same set up (LS6 heads, 224r Cam), no issue here with TSP hardened Push rods. 7.4 in length.

    Did you do valve springs?
