sr20det engine tick?

Recommended Posts

ok so ive got a sr20det in my s15 and its started making a ticking noise that goes faster and slower with engine rpm.. im not sure exactly what it would be because it doesnt happen when the engines cold and starts and stops randomly... has anyone else had this problem before?? the only things i could thik of was the rockers obviously but wouldnt that tick more when its cold because of larger clearances? Or the VVL... any help would be great cheers!!!

VCT Rattle would probably be it, unless your paranoid about SR20's typical noisy injectors?
