So we all know the High Pressure Fuel Pump's ticking sound can be fairly loud in these cars. Today I noticed that if I take the throttle up to about 1,000 rpm the ticking becomes very rapid. I have a feeling this is normal, but if anyone else out there knows for sure, or if you'd be kind enough to pop your hood, and listen to your engine I'd appreciate it.

Here is a video. You can really hear what I'm talking about the 2nd time I raise the revs from idle:

Can you further explain what you hear? To me I hear something but am not sure if its background noise or just crappy ipad speakers

Thanks for taking a look at the video.

Not exactly. If I hold the rpms at a steady 1,000 rpm, the rapid ticking will stay constant. Again, it may be normal, but I just don't remember it standing out from before. I try my best to be "in tune" with my car, but I don't remember if it has always done this or not.

Yeah it can be difficult to hear in the video, but I feel the 2nd time I raise the rpms up, it seems pretty apparent. Probably harder if you don't know exactly what your looking for. Its right from the 14 to 16 second mark.

See my above post...14 - 16 second mark is the best time you can hear it. The other times are more difficult. Its the ticking noise you hear at idle, but at a much faster pace.

If you were to give it a try on your own car...you'd hear it for sure...assuming it is normal lol.

Now that I grabbed my good pair of headphones I do hear what your talking about. But I can't say I have ever heard it on mine. If my car wasn't all covered up I would check and see for you. Maybe someone else who goes to their car everyday can chime in and confirm that it's normal or not

I appreciate that. I don't expect anyone to go out of their way to check of course, but it would be great to know, if anything, just to feel better about things lol.

Well I guess I was mistaken. I have never heard that on my Camaro before but then again I never really listen for it. Its difficult to hear the clicking of the motor after my MRTs and I rarely raise up my RPMS while I'm at idle

I didn't notice mine until I started parking in a parking garage. When I am leaving the garage I inch forward in stop/go traffic and that is when I notice it.

Alright so I may be doing some bigger mods soon to the car and want to know whether the guys who have A/F gauges have bungs welded into their headers or how you're doing it. I'm going to be installing an A/F gauge to monitor everything so want to know how you guys have it done.

You probably won't. Best you might do is just take them to a scrapyard and take whatever they give you. If not, keep them and look around in the classifieds in case anyone wants to buy some when they are going back to stock. But if you cut the tips off them, you're just better off selling them to the yard.

It's cause someone in here is looking to buy stock exhaust for a 2012. I posted on his thread I think he is in San Antonio. Would they even fit a 2012 coming from a 2011 Camaro.
