    I'm trying to remember. Is there a screen under the oil pressure switch that plugs up with crap. This also feeds the lifter valley. I could, probably be wrong.

    I have a 2011, its been ticking for a couple years now. I tried an additive for noisy lifters. It made it slightly quieter.. but that might just be in my head.
    Either way, its been 70k km and its still ticking but runs great. That will be your cheapest attempt to fix.

    Changing intake/exhaust gaskets didnt change a thing.

    Some motors will have a little tick no matter what you do to them. It's annoying but after a while you learn to live with it with no issues.

    let someone look at it you trust. If they don't find the obvious don't sweat it.
