Ironically, the old-school lifter problems, were exposed at start-up as they didnt hold the oil after shutoff.

We had 18 miles on the car when it started ticking. They replaced the entire driver side bank of lifters. The car is fine now.

If any more info is needed just PM me.
How long does it take for the engine to be warmed up enough to hear the ticking? I want to listen for it. I have 730 miles on mine and want to start listening to see if mine is developing a tick - hopefully not!
