Lifter tick or exhaust leak ? Maybe the EGR pipe is cracked or it's a manifold leak...

I had the same problem! I new the exhaust manifolds are known to rot and leak. So I purchased Torque Monster headers and while taking the manifolds off, the pass side manifold was in two halfs held together with the metal "tinfoil" wrapping. I was surprised the exhaust noise wasnt louder!

Kinda like this-
it is very common.



There is a set of FMS headers for sale here
Expo 5.0 is selling them. They are what you need to fix this for the less $$

Torque Monster headers would be better-
