Thumbs up abnormal noise? normal?

hey guys. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what is causing my car to produce this slight knocking/ticking noise.

http://soundcloud.com/jatran1/voice-002

noise in background, have to focus to hear it.
I dont think its direct injection noise.

Dealership experience (not sure if anyone is interested)
I recently brought my car in to the dealer to check out the abnormal ticking noise that my car is producing. They confirmed the noise and took my car for 1 week! They end up taking apart the transmission, replacing the flywheel but the noise is still there! After fixing and checking numerous parts they said the noise is slightly reduce but still present. I got my car today and right when I started the car, I heard the noise. The noise was not reduce but always comes and goes. Is my car a lemon?



Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

even my 1M wastegate rattles when it's cold. I've just gotten used to live with this shit. Metal expands and shrinks in heat cycles..... its perfectly normal.

Think about GTR transmission, lol

yeah im just worried that once warrenty is over, the car would get worse. Does your car get unstable idle, loud ass whine when car is hot? Sometimes it still has that noise when its warmed.
