    I have a brand new 2016 Challenger Hellcat. When I start it up in the garage I hear a tick tick noise either from the engine or around the exhaust.
    Has anyone else experienced this ? Eventually the noise goes away after 5-10 minutes.

    Can you upload a video?? But it should not tick that long,, maybe a few seconds if it's been sitting for a long time, like a few weeks or more, but should only be a few seconds

    I have had two 5.7's, two 6.1's and now the HC. The hemi is not necessarily quiet, nor smooth, at idle.

    Agree, but there is no reason it should tick for 5 to 10 minutes,,
