98 SSEi ticking
Well I just got back from Columbus where I visited Intense yesterday, I got their standard PCM. Changes to the PCM being stock shift tables and +3 degrees of WOT timing. Coming home I certainly wasn't driving slowly but I did stay in vacuum most of the time and not go over 3k most of the 160 mile drive home. There was one stretch of the trip home that I had gone WOT and got to 131mph then coasted down. But the whole time home I had my windows up and air on so hearing anything from my motor like a tick was hard.
I noticed the noise about 1 mile from my house at the gas station. I took a quick video I'm now uploading for everyone to see. My oil pressure at a hot & heat soaked 200 degree idle was a hair under 40psi.
I'm thinking possibly a collapsed lifter; but I'm really not sure what it could be.
Any ideas and help would be greatÖ
