ticking noise in a 2012 ss

I read that there is a tsb for the lifters in the L99 engines. is this true? if so can someone please show me the link to it. mine has 1500 miles on it and it sounds like it's ticking to me now and I don't believe it was there when I bought it and I was wanting to read the tsb on the topic before I took it in to have it checked. any help would be appreciated. this tick kind of fades in and out as you listen to it and it comes from the right side of the engine if you are standing in front of the car looking at it.

Sounds like the exhaust Flange gasket is leaking

Hello vermillion12ss

I could be of assistance here. If you would like to private message me your full VIN# and accurate vehicle mileage I will look into this potential issue for you further. I would also like to encourage you to take your vehicle into a dealer for diagnosis which I can also help you make an appointment for. I would need some brief information from you for that also.
