Howdy,
Does anyone know if the 8.3 is supposed to be a "noisey" engine at idle and at temp. Pretty quiet when cold.
Thanks, ZC

engine noise

I have heard some people complain that when the engine gets hot it makes noise but I have not had that with mine yet.

Yea they are noisey. They are old tech pushrod motors and 8.3 liters to boot!

They are pretty loud at idle. Tap Tap Tap. it is not because it is a pushrod motor but rather something else such as design flaw or hopefully it is actually engineered into the engine. Loose valve train tolerances at idle are a way of life with high performance engines. You do not need a tight valve train at 700 RPMs.
