Am i just Paranoid?

Okay to start off.. On my 01 GT I was having some problems, ended up being the fuel pump no that that's fix it runs like a champ all the way to the red line..

My concerns are as follows..

At idle there is a slight jump/miss/bounce very slight is this normal for these 4.6 to be a little bouncy at idle.. If I rev it up it goes away and there is no bounce or anything smooth.. Not my car isn't running bad at idle just a little bouncy in the motor.. Again very slight..

Also I here a tick, at the same time, idle, and also goes away once I rev her up.. But i cant pin point from one side or the other seams to be coming from the middle -_- ..And never here anything driving it..

Any info would be helpful.. Or Am I just paranoid?

That's the V8 you're experiencing my friend. My car does a slight bounce too. Very very slight. I chalk it up to just a normal thing. I dunno what you consider a slight bounce, though

Very very slight maybe a quarter inch or less of movement.. But rev it up and it don't move

That's normal as are little noises here and there. This isn't some newer car where the goal is to be dead silent and as much stuff hidden as possible.
