2007 Tick Tick!!

So have a 2007 Focus 2.0l (38,000KM) that seems a bit loud on the top end and more to the point around #1. I have checked clearances and found that the exhaust range from 10-12 and the intakes 9-11 (the 11's are at #1) but still in spec. Is there something else that might contribute to this noise or is 11 being max should I install new buckets to bring it to the min?
Hate the sound, it comes clearly on #1 plastic intake with a stethoscope but can not be picked up any where else such as the head but would think the plastic causes an amplification of sound.
Any thoughts?

Well it seems a bit excessive, and the same engine in the 2008 is very quiet. Are you suggesting that it could be an injector that is very loud and I should perhaps try changing it out?

Re: 2007 Tick Tick!!

Problem solved!!! So had nothing to lose by trying, and by just asking about injectors sent me off running to my parts bin and pulled out a fuel rail and injector set and replaced the set. I am happy to say the ticking has been reduced to the normal level of injectors and is no longer heard with the hood closed, the injectors are a bit loud by nature on these but it was bad before the change!
So it begs the question, why would an injector or injectors that work perfectly be so incredibly loud with such low km's, just a bad batch?
