Interesting, if you want to try something different that won't hurt a thing go to Walmart abd get a bottle of transX auto matic trans conditioner and put 3 ozs in your engibe oil. It won't hurt anything but it will help seal and oring trouble and clean the lifters.

Darth has a good idea, maybe you have a pin hole in the pickup tube or crack.

if this were the case, should I see a pressure drop while turning left? I think i would. Going to test this as well.

You could easily add 2 qts without any issues. I was running 7 qts for a while because I was on it hard in tight turns.

So after further testing I think the tick that comes up while turning hard left is not engine related. Seems to be coming from the rear and I could hear it clearly on my gopro. I tested this while driving in a circle at decent Gs and noticing it sounded like its coming from behind. I shifted to get the rpms down but maintain the speed and the tick did not change with the rpm. So I guess thats a good thing.

The engine itself still has a sewing machine noise. Only comes up once oil temps are over 140F. Ill try to post video of it soon.

Would this be ok to do on a higher mileage engine? Mine is dead silent cold but after warming up has what I think is a lifter tick that gets louder after a rev when the rpms are coming down. Then its a steady faint tick at idle. Engine internally is completely stock as far as I know.

That's good! I'd still run it a quart overfilled to make sure that pickup stays submerged.

this is almost exactly like my car. If you rev hard, lets say up to 4k, as it comes down its loudest from 1700-2200 rpm range.

On your theory number 2 if this was the case your oil pressure would be much much lower. Ask me how I know lol. If the o-ring on the pickup tube is pinched or is an issue it will cause bad oil pressure and noises only after warming up. When my car was cold it had great pressure and no noises.
