    I just got the LS Swap done and am VERY pleased with it, a very high reving torquey motor and all in all very quick. But I find when I am accelerating through gears a ticking sound occurs which gets louder and faster based on the level my rpms are at? Anyone know what is going on and if so how to fix it or a descreption of what to do to fix it. Thanks,

    Matt

    sounds like you need to relash (adjust) your valves
