    Ticking at 65

    Well here is a question for you all. The other day I was cruising down the highway and was only doing about 65 when I notice this ticking noise. I can only hear it when doing 65 or above an only on the gas. No mods have been done to the car yet. Just over a 1000 mile 1250 to be exact. Any ideas?

    Is it fast, medium, or slow? I noticed a ticking one day going down the road at around 60 and realized it was my antenna swinging in the wind.

    I will check the atenna but I dont think that is it. It stops if I lift of the gas and starts up again as soon as my foot touchs the gas peddle again. I was doing a search after posting this. I know shoudl have dont it first. Could this be an injector. Should replace them? I dont really now that much about engines. I am more a steering and suspension design guy.

    The best thing you could do is take it back to the dealer and let the warranty cover it.

    Or, if it is the injectors, it's a good excuse to get STi injectors. =)

    Hey I'm with you on that. I don't even want to spend the $50 for an MBC (plus I'd have to get a boost gauge of some sort too... so $200 total).

    That's all I've been asking my wife for. She ain't buying it.
