Does that sound even semi "normal" to anyone? NO.

Hearing the lifters that loud in a video does not sound good.

I heard the lifters as well on my car. I hated hearing a new car tap so I thought about it and came to conclusion even with a warranty service techs don't want to fix your car. Then I asked myself do I really want them to touch my car? Go in for one thing another problem returned to me possibly.
I had a ls3 conversion with compression bump and a cam added
Best decision I ever made.

Can anyone tell me how to get in touch with GM. I have a issue with my 6.0 2500 HD GMC truck. They replaced cam and lifters last week due to not enough oil. Got it back and oil prssure had been running 10 psig at idle. Called service department & they gave me a bullitin saying that it was normal. Ok fine. Well yesterday i am going home and beep beep beep beep. I WAS LIKE WHAT THE HELL. Oil light comes on so i shut it down. Now i am not a dummy here but i think i would like a new engine. There has got to be damage after all this. Can anyone help in this matter to get in touch with GM.

Hmmm....maybe I need to take my A6 in for this TSB. I was hearing ticking sounds when I would turn my car on, but then it went away. A very new symptom is that I hear the same exact ticking sound when I accelerate.

So, I took my car to the dealer today for the ticking sound under acceleration. I demonstrated it to the service advisor, and about 20 minutes later he came back and said that it might indeed be the lifters that need to be replaced. I spoke to the tech and he also said that it could be the lifters or a valve leak. Either way, they are keeping my car for an unforeseen amount of time :(

Iwantone2, hopefully they are able to get your vehicle back to you in a timely manner and hopefully they keep you up to date on how your repair is going. Let us know how the repair goes for you.

Thanks Jeff! I actually heard from my service advisor and he said something along the lines of replacing the lifters, camshaft, pushrods, seals, and gaskets. I'll keep everyone posted.

Update: I called the service advisor to make sure that the service was going to be covered under warranty...he said "This time, yes." WTF? I asked what could have caused the damage and he said, "over-revving the engine". Now correct me if I'm wrong here, but aren't there members on here who have put superchargers and such in their cars and have revved the sh!t out of their cars without similar damage to mine?

The car has a rev limiter which is gonna kill the party before it becomes an issue. It is a defect in the lifter/design pure and simple and is why they have a TSB for it and a redesigned lifter to put in it....

It had better be covered for the entire 5/100 powertrain or there would be hell to pay in my book...

That is if I still had my powertrain warranty!

Now thats funny, at one time I was told by a dealer that driving over 60 mph was aggressive and abusive driving, I really wish the dealers would screen some of there employees for experience before hiring them.

Yeah, when I first read hypurone's response, I wondered why I didn't remember that so that I could throw it in the service advisor's face. But alas, I know that I'll have the last laugh when I get the survey...

This video turned out to be an exhaust leak at the header gasket.

Just make sure you check carefully.
