    08 wrx engine noise

    So I've had my Rex for about 2 months now and I don't know if it's more of a new thing or I just never noticed it but the engine seems loud. Not a knocking loud but a ticking loud. I know the heads kind of tick but it seems a bit more than just that. Is it a Subaru thing or is it something I should dive into more?

    You've got 4 sets of cams...that makes for quite a bit of ticking...more so than even a loud ass DOHC Honda 4-banger. It's normal.

    Thats one way to do it. the usual recommended fix for weird Subaru noises is to turn up the radio.
