what you are probably hearing is lifter tick. it is common on 4g63's and not hurting anything at all.

lol this is some funny shit cause you can't adjust them not picking on you any help is good help lol
if you bring the rpms up to around 3k and it goes away then um yeah it's the lifters

which isn't bad but can trigger the knock sensor to pull timing which sucks
