I have always been told that in the morning especially, it is the fuel injector's ticking.

really annoying, almost sounds like lifter tick right? and it increases in speed with engine RPM too? let us know

The injectors aren't any more noisy than other cars injectors, but the engine is much more quiet, so you can hear them.

With my car, If your more than 10 feet away, and the fan is off, you can't even tell if the engine is running or not

Yeah I can hear the injector tick on mine, too. But, sometimes I can hear (sounds like the hydro lifters on HO 5.0) a lash adjuster and/or the roller on the rocker to cam rolling/tapping real lightly. Maybe my car has too many miles (129,000 aprox) and I think that I can hear a valve closing in my exhaust through the tail pipe. It's real faint but I can hear it.

I can really hear all the moving parts when I go through a drive through.

Something ticks me off,
