I have recently been diagnosed with "the Tick". I was hoping since I have the second run cobra that they might have fixed the problem. Not the case here. I've noticed that when I come from any speed above 20 to a stop I here no tick. I presume this is pobably due to oil pressure built up and the valve covers full. Hence better protection till the pressure goes down and valve covers empty then I have a tick. Dealer trying the re-tourqe which I am sure will be good for about a week... Well I was wondering what has been some owners results with an additive? Lucas, prolong, red line etc etc.... I am supposed to be on the list so when a fix comes out...I am lucky recepiant!! But I know there is a fix, I have aready heard of a couple guys getting the new head!
Well.........anyways your thoughts and luck with additves would be appreciated!!

Thanks, andrew

Looking for a 2.93 pulley if anyone has one for sale...Thanks

No additive here, I use Mobil1 5w 30 since first oil change..12,800 miles no tick on car #45 built May 02..
I have been putting in 6.5 qt's at oil change since first oil change.
I don't know if this helped or not..
I know guys use only 6qt's and others use 7qt's..
I went in the middle..
