new 220 sounds a bit "Ticky"?

Hey Alll,

Geez I wish I had more time to look over the forums I takes forever to catch up!
Anyhow,

I picked up my new XR8 yesterday and it seems a little ticky under acceleration, It quiets down when crusing but having just come out of a very quiet XR6 I'm not sure about the tick? so far about 300k's on the new one will this quiet down as it beds in.

Any ideas.

Thanks in advance.

PS: I guess I'll have to change my usenamenow HE HE.
also
Any suggestions for initial mods, (apart from the K&N ) :CU:

re:

Give it around 1500 to 2000k's to run the engine in...Just don't drive it hard for about 5000k & change the oil regularly....If it still ticks take it back to ford....The ticking could be the Roller Rockers or Roller Liffters (nothing serious) (Check to see that you don't have a leak in the extractors/exhaust because it makes the same noise)

Having listened to alot of the 220kw Windsors it does seem to be ticky, though i think it's a characteristic of the valvetrain/cam on them.

Personally i think a good number of 220kw's make the noise i wouldn't worry about it. But drive it gently first 5k and do an oil change.

Thanks Guys,

I guess nothing to worry about.
BTW what type of oil is best to use in this?
also should I be changing the filter at 5000?


Thanks

Ed

AUXRHP,

I think for the Windsor engine, Shell Helix Ultra or Mobil One would be good oils for your car.

Gee, another one. Trust me, this is normal for most engines of the 200 aND 220 outputs. I don't really know what it is. I've seen and tried new cams, lifters, roller rockers, rocker covers, pushrods and all have failed to shut the engine up.

Having said that, mine improved when I replaced the Tickford headers with Herrod items (the DiFilippo versions). I would suspect exhaust as being the prime candidate, although mine was definitely not leaking.

When you consider this further, the 200 and 220 engines share the same header design with the 220 having bigger cats.

Summary: a good excuse to strip the engine down, stroke it, and fit Herrod exhaust. The fun starts here!

ford had a customer based(only if the customer complains) recall on the cylinder heads, they found the valve guides wearing excessively and the fix was to replace the heads under warranty

Well if thats the case I'd say the original geometry was wrong!!
Anusual for guides to wear on r/rockers if geometry is right!!
Stud mount is the way to go, with hardened pushrods..

Cheek that the #4 spark plug lead is not resting on your rocket cover.

This courses it to arc under load I had this problem in my Series III XR8
Ford will replace your leads if this is the problem but all you have to-do is move it off the rocket cover.

You will also notice that #4 will have a metal coating over it to help this problem but it still shorts if itís resting on the rocket cover.
