I have the same exact symptoms as you, but it is unnoticeable when the engine is cold.
Mine doesn't matter. Hot or cold. It's there. And it's not loud like all the rid knock videos. It's been making this ticking for a while. Hasn't gotten any louder and I have done plenty of pulls.
Trying to make a audio clip.
Just drove around and tried recording it with my iphone recording underneath the pedals. Its something u cant hear when driving during the day, with the music on 4-5 volume. If you have no music on, during the day, you can slightly hear it. But at night when its calm and not loud out you can hear it. Its not there when you rev the motor, but under load only. It is steady, and does not get louder no matter how fast you go through the 2k-3k rpm range, its mainly while cruising through residential is when ill go "what the ****... is ... that..."
