Okay this damn ticking is killing me, I put on High flow cats and now when I take off I can hear this unbelievable ticking I know it is the lifters but holy cow they are loud it sounds like I have a broken lifter. What would help make this go away?
got headers? sure it's not an exhaust leak? lifter noise usually goes away/reduces off idle as the oil pressure builds up. unless something's broken.
No headers, just highflows with Magnaflow exhaust all the way out. The ticking I hear at low speeds seems to go away as I go faster.
If you have a Predator, turn off the the EGR valve. That might get rid of the ticking, it did for me.

ticking is normal... just something you have to live with, you would know if the lifter was broken because your car would have issues off of idle.

Which grade of fuel are you using? I had a ticking isue with my 2006 300c which was solved when I switched to regular grade 87 octane fuel instead of 91 octane. My 2008 300c has no ticking issues with any fuel.
If it goes away after the car is warmed up then my money's on an exhaust leak at one of the exhaust manifolds.
just bought a 06 300c and there is always a slight rattle what ever you wanna call it but it doesn not go a way are you saying i should sw to 87 octane mindless what the book calls for 89
