Ticking. Possible answer's?

My car has a ticking noise but it is light and only at high rpm's. It does it when im moving but goes away when i stop. We thought it might possibly be a wheel bearing? I dread the thought of it being a lifter.

Exhaust leak is what it sounds like I'm not sure if ur year is the same but the ac drips water on the exhaust manifold on the 99-04's and it causes it to rust and get holes is what I hear? It ticks because of that.

Oh a question for someone do you know if you lose hp/tq with this exhaust manifold leak? my friend said he feels it Is more powerful after he got his fixed. Hes an idiot tho he could buy a new shift knob that said performance and it would make his stang feel faster to him lol.

Dependeding on the leak its possible to lose power, and for that power to be regained when the leak is fixed. Whether it would be noticeable is debatable.
