Default **ZZP Power Log Problem**

Whats up everybody...Im having a small problem...I bought the manifolds from ZZP and I had Ed Morad put them on...And we all know Morad and his boys know what they're doing...I had them put these on, and I went back a few days later for them to tighten everything down for me...and STILL I get this ticking/leaking noise...Any ideas??

I cant hear anything in the video but the intake. Try a smoke test to see if there are any leaks.

alot of times its because that the PL is a thinner metal similar to the headers, and the ticking you hear is actually the valves opening/closing

Brian (Gonneville) has some SLP headers (pretty sure) that tick pretty noticeably. I forget the reason they do, but he says it'* normal...

It'* kind of hard to hear anything over your IAC through the first 60 seconds of the video. But I did hear some ticking @ ~51secs, it'* pretty hard to diagnose in the video but although it annoying it'* normal.

I looked on ZZP’* website to try and find out what gauge the piping on the PLOG is but I couldn't find out. I have noticed louder ticking at idle with the SLP headers (16 gauge steel) vs. my TOGs that are 14 gauge. The cast manis are pretty thick so pretty much anything is going to make valve train noise more audible.
