Default Ticking/Exhaust Leak?

Howdy,

My truck has developed a ticking noise. It occurs mostly on deceleration especially with no throttle input, down to about 1,100rpm. It is in time with the engine.

I noticed this noise after I had just worked on it: Comp 910 springs and an intercooler. I was suspicious of the valve train so I pulled the valve cover off the passenger side (sounds like it's coming from passenger side) and checked torque on rockers. All good. Ran engine with vc off and nothing is jumping out at me.

Monkeyed with the intercooler piping, down pipe, fixed a fuel leak just in case I was pumping air, did a buzz test. All good. Injectors have 5k miles or so on them, same as fuel system and kc300x 63/73 turbo. No ticking prior to the latest round of parts (springs and intercooler).

What do you think?

Sorry for the double post but here is a short video of the sound. Listen closely around 0:09 and 0:20.

Nothing that I've seen. The passenger side under the manifold of pretty greasy so some soot could potentially go unnoticed... There was a slight discoloration at the manifold to uppipe ball joint when I was scrutinizing tonight but it doesn't look like when some soot has leaked out of joints in the past.

Thank you for the time/response. Means a lot.

Ok I was under the hood cranking the turbo exhaust housing-to-collector bolts a little tighter and was able to quiet down the tick a bit. Looks like the passenger side donut might be a little darker than the driver's side one. Went ahead and snapped off a 1/4" extension attempting to tighten the flange so I don't think it's loose.

Dang it... I was hoping to get away with keeping stock up pipes since I resealed them a few years ago concurrent to the ZF-5 swap. I guess if/when my clutch goes I will do bellows. I love FFD, are their up pipes any good?
