Engine Clicking, any Experts?

So I bought my car about 5 days ago and this ticking sound came out of no where. I never noticed at first.
being scared I dropped by the service department at my local chevy dealer and the guy told me it was my injection pump..
I didn't know what to think since I've test driven 6 different Camaros in the past 2 weeks and none of them made this sound.. any thoughts?

btw.. it's not a grocery car if you have a full cart.

If you have a V6 it is the direct injection....nothing to worry about it. If you sit at idle and hear it click, and then slowly add some power you should notice the clicking speeds up. Totally normal.

Do you own a V6?

If you own a V6 here's what you'll hear at idle. Go at 45 seconds and 1m20. That's normal for most of the LLT's.

You need new baggers. I do 3 people for week (including beer, but not wine) without an issue other than the ass gets heavy.

It's quite fun

As already been said, nothing to worry about. It freaked me out the first time too. I heard it the day I got it putting her in the garage.
