Default Is a 4.6 engine supposed to tick?

Why does the engine ticks? it runs fine and everything but I don't like the ticking sound. Is it normal? how can I fix if it aint? Ticks from both sides.

Fuel injectors, and the fact the the whole valvetrain is on top of the head, no real way to cover the sound all those moving parts make. My 2010 makes plenty of noise, but is is all uniform and consistent, normal noise. Don't worry until you have one that stands out and is on one side only. Enjoy!

my '06 rattles like a damn diesel at idle with the hood up. It's normal.

Perfectly normal fast ticking noise unless this is something you have JUST noticed and it has just poped up. But ya fuel injectors are the fast ticking noise and the only way to not hear them as much is by getting long tubes or sc

This will lead to bigger injectors and bigger "ticks"
