Default Wierd clicking noise at partial throttle

Hi everyone, just wondering if anyone has some insight on this problem I have.
My wrx has 55000 miles on it and is recently Cobb stage 1. Now there is this wierd clicking noise from the driver's side at partial throttle in 1st gear. I've heard that its a sound like the crankshaft is going to walk away? I hope not. Any input?

Thanks

do you hear this noise when the engine is warm, or cold, or both? Do you have an oil pressure guage? Change your oil and dump it into a clean container. Look for sparkly metalic stuff.

if that happens when it's cold then that is pretty normal.

ya, sorry to leave you hanging on that first reply. That ticking is usually either piston slap or a lazy timing belt tensioner.

Just to be on the safe side you might want to find out what your oil pressure is anyway. And perhaps even have a leakdown test done if you are really concerned.
