ticking noise

A guy i work with has a 2011 1lt. He has a ticking noise that gets worse as the car warms up. He is gonna bring it for me to hear and see whats goin on with it. I was just wondering if there was anyone on here that has had any problems with their llt making a ticking noise? Or any ideas what it might be? I will try and get video of it?

He says this is a new sound that just started today. Its an automatic. The only thing he has done to it is a cai.

he never noticed the ticking sound, thats why its new.

Search the forums for how many people made this exact thread. The same answer every time: its normal.

The noise was not his injectors. After hearing it in person i told him to get it to a dealer and have it checked out. The dealer told him it was some bearings and would be covered under warranty.

My V-8 gave a pretty loud tick sound while warming up a few days ago, but I didn't think anything of it.
