So, has everyone made peace with the 2K rattle?

Those noises I have heard at low speeds cruising around the neighborhood. I actually love the weirdo injector whooshing and whining.
Yah man.. I always enjoy listening to my solid cam lifters on my 289 Ford.

It will not. I highly doubt most know what piston slap actually sounds like.
Ha ha. Yeah, it's deafening if inside a garage. Three of my cars had it: An F-150 5.4 V8, and LS1 + LS2 Corvettes.

I can't hear anything over the exhaust.

Rattle on...

That could actually be it. When driving "normally" I'm at 3-5k under acceleration and 1500-1800 while cruising. In Mexico the revs are 5-7k. I'm never hanging out at 2k to get the "2k rattle".
Your doing something wrong then :p You have the rattle, your just in the 10% of the 90% that have it that can't hear it. (tinnitus)

I'm convinced the 2k rattle is direct injection doing it's thing. All the German cars I had recently before this did it, but continuously. My 2005 Lincoln LS did it, and a lot louder than the Mustang.

If something was defective about these engine they wouldn’t last thousands of miles at 4500+ RPM like my car has.

I could speculate on all the noises these engines make but it seems to have a low failure rate and revs forever.

It makes me feel good that my car makes all the normal sounds. Rattle,tick, tap.

I truly believe all the cars make it, some people are just lucky to not hear it. Safety reminder: Once you do hear it, you'll always hear it and it could drive you nuts.

I own an early German DI car. It has no rattle like the mustang. You can hear the injectors tick at idle when modded (Intake+Cowl), but as you accelerate, you just hear a smooth engine. As much as I hate on our BMW for reliability, I have to admit that I6 TT is a much better sounding engine than the Yote.

To answer the OP, I haven't really made peace with it, but I do ignore it. The engineer in me wants real answers as to the root cause, but I am not invested enough to spend time troubleshooting. Mine started at around 1k miles, is worse when cold, tends to be much quieter with the A/C off, and wasn't changed by the addition of Cera Tec. I doubt I will keep this car long enough to find out if this is related to some long-term failure mode. Heck, I only have 7900mi after 3 years of owning it.

So by comparison the BMW sucks mechanically, but at least it doesn't tick :crackup:

As a new owner, this was is my observation. First 50 degree morning, and she was very noisy when warming up. Just assumed it was injection related but maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe it's different now, because my 2016 M235 had to have fake engine noise to cover up for the meh sounding i6.
