03 sonic blue cobra 44,xxx miles
Car has 2.93 upper 4# lower
60# fuel injectors, diablosport MAFia and predator
C and L intake

Rebuilt t56 with about 7K on it
Centerforce DFX clutch, Ram flywheel, Pro 5.0 short shifter

AFCO single pass aftercooler

SRA swap with richmond 3.73 gears and all bearings and seals replaced, gt brakes in rear with new rotors,calipers,pads and stock exhaust from an 04 mach 1 with stainless tips...

Engine devolped a tick at about 39K miles, i drove it for a while saving my money up for new heads, In june i purchased the heads from a local dealership, They are the newest updated heads, I replaced all gaskets associated with the headswap and replaced the headbolts, New timing chains, tensioners, and guides...

Started the car... ran for about an hour, tick free...And then the tick was back, and has gotten louder progressively over the 800 miles or so since i put the heads on..When the car heats up it is pretty loud.

Its not a knock but a loud tick/clacking noise...Car has good oil pressure( verified with mechanical gauge) and is still making good power...

Windshield is cracked in upper DS corner from a baseball
Spoiler is cracked
Minor door dings, yada yada yada..

Asking 16,500 OBO

The car should not be driven until fixed and car is sold AS IS..

My name is Pat and i know a bunch of people on here...lilred302 can vouch for me and the car and the MIND BLOWING noise...

why does it have 60lb inj ........?
the car was going to be making more power, we wanted to be safe, until the tick came back

did this car have a procharger on it?

Just cause the engine has a tick does not mean its hurt. I was going to replace my heads on my car cause of "Tick" but read that its not uncommon for the 03 to have a head tick.
