I have had a ticking coming from the motor and its getting louder.:eek: I put my ear by my car and it sounds like it is coming from the eaton. I thought it was from one of the heads but i place it at the supercharger every time.:dunno: I should check the oil in the eaton. What is your guys input on this?

Remove the belt and start her up to confirm.

Take a long screwdriver, put the metal end against the Eaton and the other end against your ear. Works like a stethoscope. I'd bet it's your blower bearings going.

It may also be that the clearance on the rotors has been screwd up or the bearings, take the belt off the blower then you can spin the blower by hand slowly to see if it grinds or binds up at all. if so I think steggy rebuilds them pretty cheap under 300 or so.

Like the others said take the belt off and that will tell all... Remember sound travels like crazy through these motors. I thought I had a head tick, changed the lifters and its still there. Rod bearing(s) :crying:

Could also be the plastic coupling between the nose and rotor gears. Once the belt is off, gently spin the pulley back and forth and see how much slop there is before you feel it spin the rotors. I just put a new coupling in mine and there is no slop what so ever, and the old one had a lot.

Me too, but right now it comes and goes. It's annoying.

Did you recently do any high speed runs or change to a different type of oil.

No high speed over 120mph and that was a while ago. I did change to royal purple. But that was a while ago. My buddys said it sounds as loud as before, maybe i am worring myself.

I have heard something like that too, but I had the tick before I changed oils. The car runs great so I dont think its all that big of a deal yet. It just bugs the shit out of me!!!!!:mad:

I had the same noise car ran the same but the noise is very aggravating and ended up needing a new motor.

You might still qualify for an 80/20 warranty deal if you can get a mod friendly dealer to honor it. I got mine fixed that way, where I paid 20% and the dealer picked up the rest. I think it's 5 years 50m miles? Not sure.

I was over my 36 months, but NOT 36M miles. I don't remember, but I hope it's available for you.

Sounds like the head tick, the car will run fine just tick.

The engine needs to be removed to pull the heads (per ford) but you can remove the heads w/ stock heads bolts NOT STUDS!

Updated heads are around $1500 a pair w/o core charge

Head gaskets are $100 per side

APR studs are $250 a pair...
