LS3 ticking?

Good evening everybody!

Is this ticking noise normal for the LS3? I do not remember hearing it before and I want to make sure everything is good to go.
I have roughly 15.6k miles on it. Only mods so far are solo performance high flow cats. I'd appreciate any feedback..

I had ticking at 28000 miles, ended being fan belt pulley & tensioner and the dealer replaced anf the belt under warranty.

Sounds normal to me, actually not as bad as others I've heard.

It did take my dealer 3 days to figure it out, but I was happy the ticking was gone.
Good luck.

My car has the exact same ticking also louder on passenger side under the car I've owned it for 2 weeks it's only got 65000kms I changed my oil to mobil 1 and mobil 1 oil filter as recommended I was thinking of adding a zinc and phosphorus additive to see if that would help?

Before thinking it's a belt pulley or tensioner make sure there's not a rock or something jammed in the tire tread, can also make a ticking sound.
Good luck

My belt pulley and tensioner made the ticking at idle, didn't notice at speed because it was winter, windows up at 20 degrees.

If mine didn't sound like a sewing machine, I'd think something was wrong
