Oh ok, cool, just out curiosity did you convert to mechanical or solid lifters, i saw a kit online and thought about it, but scrapped the idea since my car is a DD. To your first post i think it is possible that valves need adjustment especially if they haven't been done in awhile, that would definitely cause a ticking noise, unfortunately i dont know what the clearance or interval would be for this engine.
Also it might be worth checking the TPS, i dont have the bentley manual in front of me as my laptop broke that had a copy of it but just from google i found some values that might be correct:
( TPS should be 1-4kohm (continuosly varies with pushing down gas pedal) on pins 1-2 and 4kohm on pins 1-3)
I will see if can find another copy and make sure its right. Although i am not sure if a bad TPS would make that ticking noise. Also does the noise speed up with increased throttle.
