Definitely sounds like a part with out of tolerance issues and the additive is making up for it. The tick can be mistaken for so many other things. Mine was a shredded cam chain tensioner and it ticked as well.

Maybe it’s just me but I still hear a noise,

some may be more quiet than before

I took a video of mine starting up

but cell phone quality of sound isn’t as quiet as in person,

but the sound behind the wheel on yours is what I still hear

I will post mine
Passenger wheel
Is quiet

Mine wasn’t a cold start vid, but I could make one of those as well. My last video was after adding the ceratec and taking like a 60 mile drive.

in your video
First 20secs.
That knock noise.

Do a walk to the rear this time

When I was getting issues it was heard in the exhaust note.

when I get home next week I do a hot video.

I find using head phones helps with hearing noise

I watched your video. Motor sounds pretty normal to me. I noticed the carpet runners in your garage. Is that to keep the inside carpet in your Cobra cleaner? Serious question.

Haha. No. That is just something the missis put down.

I have what seems to be the exact same noise coming from the same general area. I plan to have it looked at and let you know what they find. My motor was built by the same 2 guys as well! Pretty cool.

LOL. I used to hate walking on my garage floor and often picked up concrete dust on my shoes, only to have it rub off on my car mats. Since having the floor coated, zero dust and it's like walking on an inside the house floor. Now, I'm really anal about keeping it clean. So seeing carpet runners in a garage really doesn't surprise me. LOL.

Interesting.

I wouldn't look at that as a negative thing. Jeff and Gary were the senior guys and still building on the Niche Line with the new 2020 GT500 Predator engines. They know what they're doing. I would have no hesitation buying a GT500 with one of their names on it. My ticking issue started a couple months ago after pulling it out of winter storage. I took it for a drive before changing the oil and that was my mistake. I didn't catch an oil leak coming from the oil cooler and threw 16-17 lbs of boost through the motor for some "spring fun." I noticed the oil level AFTER the noise started. Anyways, going to just rebuild the motor and have the peace of mind and also upgrade to 700+ hp.

I’m not sure until it gets opened up. I’m just going for a full rebuild anyways even if it’s something small that got damaged. Hopefully reliable 700+ is on the horizon

Just want to update this thread...

Tick is still gone. Used my aeroforce gauge to calculate net hp, and got 423 hp at 6000 rpm in 4th gear at an elevation of 700. 423 - 15% = 359.55 whp. Looks like the cobra is nice and healthy atm. =)
