Finally !!!!! Running back to normal and then some :-)

Ok, You guys know I have dealt with so many finicky issues. So, in short - I get my local Vet guy to revise my parameters and reset TB. After I left his shop, a medium level ticking was heard on the pass's. side. I have had this noise years ago but it went away. UNTIL he messed with tune this time. So today, Im going up a steep , long, incline ( aprox 5 degree ) behind a c5 - later year. Its 98 degrees out and humid. I am going aprox 55mph. I stomp on throttle, I kick down to 3rd and lay LOUD scratch on asphalt ( not concrete ) . The guy looks in his rear view mirror when he heard that and started going. I passed him easily until he gave up. So, I pull over and go into a grocery store. I come out and start car. NO TICK NOISE. Drove home , still no tick noise. What do you guys think ? Sticky valve/lifter ? Maybe the stomping on throttle freed it up ? Idles smoother too.
