Default V6 Engine Ticking

Hey guys,

So, let's start from the beginning. I drive a 2006 Mustang V6 with 117k miles on it. A few months back I was driving and my thermostat housing blew, tossed all of my coolant under the hood of the car. Drove it ASAP with water to my mechanic. Less than 2 miles.

I was told there was no damage to the engine. They filled it up, replaced the parts, and it runs fine. I have driven it across the country from Oregon to North Carolina without any issues or engine lights or over heating.

That being said, ever since the coolant blowing, there has been a light tick in the engine anytime the rev is past 2500 rpm. As in there is a sound with the rev in every gear and in neutral. It sounds like it's coming out of the valve train. I have had it looked at by another mechanic and was told their is no issues.

I am driving it back across the country and just want to double check that there isn't anything I should look at last minute or check out. I can post a video w/ the sound if that would help.

Probably just the injectors firing. If the noise gets loud you can start to worry:-)
