Rattle noise from motor

Is it just me or do 6.4's seem to make a rattling noise coming from the motor. It's very minimal so I barely even hear it. I guess because in know its there it just stands out to me. Does anybody else hear that noise with there truck

You're probably hearing injector rattle.

Is that common? In a few months I am looking to have the shop do head studs,turbos and injectors. Will a new set of injectors make the same noise

I have plenty of diesel trucks that do not make the kind of noise my 6.4 does. This would include a 2012 gmc 2500 and my 2012 f-250. I know........I have to many trucks. The 6.4 is my favorite

Check your belt tensioners... I had a small rattle noise and that was my culprit.
