Just noticed today, when accelerating at high speed (over 65mph) hear engine ticking.
Sounds like it's coming from passenger side in front of glove box area.
Goes away when I stop accelerating.
Weird thing is, had same exact sound...from same place on my 2011 Challenger 392.
Anyone?

I’ve read about this before. And there was a guy that went round and round with a dealer. Finally proved a new hellcat didn’t make an abnormal sound as loud as his.
he ended up having two rocker shafts replaced on the passenger side. If I find it again I will provide the link.

Thanks for the link! Honestly couldn't hear anything in that first video.
I just think it's strange that I had exact same thing in my Challenger, which was the 392 engine & M6.

No problem. They say the “hemi tick” is normal.
but if excessively loud it can be something else.
i mean the 3.6 V6 makes all kinds of “mechanical” noise when running but that’s normal as well. Unless excessively loud.

I think the "Hemi Tick" is at idle, which ironically mine doesn't have. This just happens accelerating at high speed. Wouldn't even hear it with radio on.

happening only under acceleration (load) instantly makes me think valve train. I hope you figure out what it is.
