Do you have an exhaust leak. I had my transmission rebuilt and the shop didnt get the clamp to my down pipe tightened and it made a noticeable ticking. Check it and also check your up pipes to make sure they are sealed to rule out exhaust tick. Oh and look at your exhaust manifolds, my passengers side was loose. I noticed it when I replaced my up pipe gaskets.

yes they can. 'ticking' can be a relative term so we will have to hear it to know what your talking about.
