had my kooks installed with catted x pipe and i just noticed today that sounds like a ticking noise coming from under the car. can be heard well at idle especially when parked next to other cars and also at very low rpms when im on the gas any ideas what it is?? headers were installed less than a week ago. do you think i just need to tighten everything up??

Sounds like a leak to me. I think after a couple of heat/cool cycles you need to go back and re-torque everything.

could it also be valve clatter? Stainless steel seems to conduct sound much more... or you have a minor leak..
