Ride: ba xr8 ute

Location: devonport
TAS, Australia

hi all, I own a ba xr8 ute 6 speed man, I have a ticking noise when the motor warms up a bit, no noise when the motor is first started and cold, I have pulled the serpentine belt off and noise still there, then tried pulling/disconnected each injector and the noise is still there, was thinking timing tensioner but it’s not a rattle it’s a ticing noise and comes on about 2500 rpm, any help would be great as 4 different mechanics tell me 4 different things
cheers

where did you get that diagnosis from?

are you able to get a small camera with a light on it to try visually inspect the pistons before pullin stuff apart?
