    Ticking

    Hondas tend to Tick Off beat from the engine. This is normally due to a loose Heat Sheild. this is known mostly as the ( Honda Tick ) not a hard fix, normally a tighten of the bolts or in more extreme/ stripped bold situations. A good Big Hose Clamp :)

    How loud is the tick and are you sure it's coming from the valvetrain?? EG6 is right about them normally ticking. Mine has a light tick only when it's up to temp which is probally your case . the Valve lash is probally just a little out of tolerance when it warms up and if you actually "touched" the valve train I'm pretty sure you didn't do it when it was up to normall running temp. I'd adjust the lash when the car is warm and see if that clears it up.

    If you're sure it's the valvetrain, check the keepers on your retainers. They like to break on the AP1s when they're overrevved.

    I thought it was the retainers that crack, not the keepers:shrug:

    reving it shouldn't be a problem, im sure he still has a rev limiter . unless he does it on the down shift

    its actually a pretty common problem. the rev limiter on the AP1 wont prevent you from breaking something.

    Both have issues- they're connected to each other anyway, so when you replace one you should replace the other.

    W3RD... I just figured the retainers would crack.....then the actuall keeper would slip down between the broke-up retainer. Sorta like when a washer gives way under a bolt head...washer cracks, slips out around the bolt head , then the bolt head slides through the hole. Any way you slice it, this kid is a one hit wonder. DIe post die!!!!
