I purchased the car new.

2021 GT, 6spd. (26k miles)

catless headers, K&N intake that uses factory airbox. Tune from Shrader Performance.

Runs great, sounds awesome. It's alwasys consumed about 1-1.5 qts of oil between oil changes.

It made that sound a little on day 1. you can't really hear it unless you're under the hood or standing right over it while it's running. Otherwises the exhaust covers up the sound.

This sound like a normal tick or do we have a problem?

that's not a normal tick and to me using that much oil is not normal. how did you break in the engine?

The first 1000 miles or so was easy going, no pulls till redline. basically regular driving.

Car does have headers so I know the tick gets a lot loud with headers. Just not sure if this is too loud.
