I just notice that my engine now seems to noise coming from it. It kind of sounds like the lifter tick, trying to get a couple more opinions. Video taken with my cell phone so the beginning is blurry then it focuses.

Hard to tell where the sound is comming from. It could be lifter, rocker, or injector making that noise hard to tell from the video.

Mine sounds exactly like yours. I was told it's normal to sound like that. The lifter tick will be much more prominent like in the YouTube vids out there.

With the engine running, take off the oil cap. If the noise is internal, the sound will change. That eliminates the external stuff like the injectors.
