Re: 2011 FPV GT Manual Boss 335 Ticking lower end
I hate hearing this, since the warranty has expired, there's really no obligation (legally) for the dealership to take care of it. I would gather any records you have and contact the district manager. There is a chance that it's a phenomena with that particular engine. My work truck has the EcoBoost and it makes all kinds of strange noises. I was about to take it to the dealer until I heard the other three that we had at the time make the same noises. I don't mean to be dismissive about this, but after 55,000 miles on the engine and it's only the noise you've experienced. I don't know how you drive, but I believe the engine has VCT, it may need to have a firmware upgrade. Hopefully there's someone a little more familiar with the newer Falcons.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
