Yes mine was to, but did you listen to his video he posted? That is way too noisy for way too long. It's not oil pressure cause that is on point. And this doesn't sound like a ping from spark knock so that can be ruled out. From what I can hear through the video, it sounds like something in the top end. Generally it is a deeper sounding knock if it was crank bearings. I would definitely stay on them unitl they get it fixed or get him a new motor.
I did not, because I didn't see the link when I read his post. I did watch it now.
Towards the end, I head a little bit of "knock noise" but I think this is the fuel-trim. OHV engines sound changes as the cams heat up. Every Z06 I've owned does this and those engines are made by one guy and signed.
My Porsche(s) and my STi have all sounded like tin cans at idle. Tink, tink, tink, tink, tink, tink. Any high-end or supercar car that I've owned that didn't have a loud idle -I paid a gas-guzzler tax on that vehicle.
If you gas it under load and it doesn't sound like it's throwing a rod - it purrs up the RPMs - it's fuel-trim. All these new cars have to meet some BS EPA standards for idle and etc. Progressively, this has gotten worse/stricter over the years.
@Units I don't think there's anything wrong with your truck. I'd suggest always turning the ECO Mode off when driving. Start up is loud and I heard what you're talking about - a little towards the end - but idle isn't under load. Moreover, you have a warranty, just use it. When your truck cools off, the cams have to get to temperature again, and that's why it sounds that way at start up after sitting for a couple of hours. Every OHV engine I've owned does this at start up - Chevy (Z06s), Dodge (Vipers), GMC 1500, and now a RAM 3500.
