Well, this ain't good for those of us that fall in the date range an have heavily modded the car. Sorry for the crappy screenshot. Randomly found this while watching a video about the newest cam phaser bulletin for the 3.5EB in the trucks.

Maybe, just a tad..
With all these 2020 Mustang GT owners like myself, any of you have this "typewriter tick" that many 2018-2019 Mustang GT owners have?
I don't now but my first oil change is later this month...

I have a 2020 mustang gt, automatic, california special edition. If I have the windows down radio off, and I pay attention to the car at idle, I can sometimes hear it. It's not bad yet.

I also have the DI tick when the car is cold. Once the car warms-up though, the DI tick is hardly noticeable. BTW - I am at 7800 miles and the dealership does all the oil changes. From what I read on here from others, if the typewriter / bbq bothers you, put Ceratec in. People say the Ceratec helps. FYI - Check with your dealer to see if it is OK to put in.

I did my first oil change at 3000 miles on my 2020. I did it my self and used pens oil ultra platnum 5w30 with a ford performance oil filter. I have no wired ticks or noises i have just under 5000 miles on my car now.

I think the dealership uses 5W 20.

I had a 2015 Mustang GT, 6M, 3k miles that was traded for my current 2020 Mustang GT. No issues at all with 2015 and like it so much the 2020 with improvements was an ez decision. Didn't know about this "tick" on 2018-19. Lots of opinions re tick but so far doesn't look like the 2020s are affected or at least as much. I'll be listening after first oil change coming up...
