i have a golf gl....had to replace the lifters in it so i did a cam too every thing was runnin like a champ.....i did a 270 degree autotech cam.

the issue that i have now is i have a ticking...not the same as the lifters...it is when i accelerate.....it is not really there when it is at idle, mostly when i give it gas. there is a spot when i am goin down the high way that it is fine....it is the point when you i am keeping the same speed. if i speed up...it does it. it also hesitates a little, especially when its cold.

it lost some low end acceleration....but i expected a little of that.........i just changed the plugs and wires..it helped a little........i am gonna take it back to the shop to have him look at it.

if you guys have any ideas...shoot me a reply
Thanks,
Trevor

Sounds like it's knocking. Check the ignition timing.

What gas do you use. I had the same sort of a noise and it was pinging due to cheap gas. Used premium and it went away. A long shot but just an idea.

more then likely it's the exaust manifold i had the same problem with my GTI...there one piece on that but it could have cracked...also check the timeing it could be off...but sounds more like a manifold problem..
