2005 GT ticking noise

So today was the first time in a little while that I have popped the hood while the car was running. Once I did it, I noticed a ticking noise that was coming from the top of the engine.. I've done research of other forums and its apparent that it's a lifter tick but I'm just wanting some input from my own post

Car has 44k on it, oil was changed 1k ago and it doesn't have any drivability issues. Can't really hear the tick outside until you get close and then you can but its more profound once the hoods open

Anyone else had this issue? Fixed it? Pricing to do so? Thanks!

The 4.6s of all generations and valve numbers are know to have natural ticking.

Are we sure it isn't just the injectors? If it isn't profound I wouldn't sweat it. It's just nature of the beast, especially with those low miles.

I'll attach a video after I'm off. It didn't do it when I first bought it :/

All right once you get the video up we will be able to tell you if its normal or not.

With only 43k I highly doubt anything is seriously wrong with the car. Plus the fact that you are concerned tells me you care about the car and probably take care of it ya know.

In the meantime, have you done any exhaust work lately? Exhaust leaks give a nice metal-y sounding "tick tick tick" and it often times echoes up trough the wheel wells.
