knock???

some of yall might remember me from about a year ago. i had an 04 f250 and sold it because i couldnt afford it anymore. well im back and trying to buy another diesel. i found an 08 kingranch cc/lb 4x4 thats deleted and super clean.

only problem i have with this truck is it has a kinda knock in the topend of the motor, but i honeslty think its a normal noise and not something to be worried about. i just wanna make sure since i cant afford to replace a 6.4l lol
i guess my question is does the delete normally make the motor louder? obviously the exhaust is going to be alot louder but idk about this noise in the motor.

THIS MAY OR MAY NOT APPLY TO THE PARTICULAR NOISE YOU ARE HEARING, BUT THOUGHT I WOULD POST THE INFO FOR YOU ANYWAY.

TSB
09-16-2 6.4L DIESEL ENGINE TICKING/TAPPING NOISE

Publication Date: August 3, 2009

FORD: 2008-2010 F-Super Duty


This article supersedes TSB 08-19-5 to update the vehicle model years.

ISSUE:
Some 2008-2010 F-Super Duty 250-550 vehicles equipped with a 6.4L diesel engine may exhibit a random engine ticking / tapping noise that is most noticeable when engine coolant temperature is 185 F (85 C) or higher and from base idle to approximately 1500 RPM. Some customers may complain that this noise becomes more evident after 3000-5000 miles have accumulated on the vehicle or after an engine oil change.

ACTION:
Refer to the Service Procedure for repair recommendations.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

The ticking / tapping noise is most noticeable at the rear of the driver's side front wheel well. 6.4L Powerstroke diesel engines exhibit this normal audible condition (some engines will exhibit greater audible noise due to engine build variations). 6.4L Powerstroke diesel engines are manufactured to tight tolerances in order to meet strict durability and reliability standards.

This noise is caused by the relationship between engine block, crankshaft journals, bearing inserts and oil viscosity / film. This relationship allows a pulsation that resonates through the cylinder block and is heard as a metallic ticking noise. This condition is present on all diesel engines.

Technological improvements and overall noise reduction in today's diesel engines make this issue seem new when in fact it was masked by other noises on previous engines. Other engine manufacturers report similar conditions in their diesel engines. Vehicle testing and engine teardown analysis have confirmed this condition will not effect reliability or long term durability of this engine. Dealers should not attempt to perform vehicle to vehicle noise comparisons. This may lead to incorrect conclusions and ineffective repairs.

NOTE: DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIRS FOR THIS NORMAL NOISE CONDITION. REPLACING THE ENGINE OR INTERNAL COMPONENTS WILL NOT REDUCE OR ELIMINATE THE TICKING/TAPPING NOISE. PLEASE PROVIDE THIS BULLETIN TO CUSTOMERS THAT INQUIRE ABOUT THIS CONDITION.

I have the "tick" in my truck. Sounds TERRIBLE at times, but hasn't seemed to hurt it yet.
