OK ya Bad spelling my bad trying to type while at work. UM so i made a video and u cant here the sound at all. so then i took my buddys 2005 sti stage 2 out and his made the same kind of sound just not as bad. still not sure what it is but both of are car boost fine and we couldnt fine any kind of leak. the only thing with mine is i have a down pipe with spt exhaust and junk injens intake and have had a po244 code come up twice. and as far as i no i dont have a tunem, but this week i have a AP coming with Perrin Intake.

Might be the injectors and cams. 5-40 Rotella should quiet it down a bit if that's what it is.

ok so iv been looking all over and think i have found what the problem is. found on Nasioc
"very faint ticking/Knocking sound low rpm under load.
Said to be BCS ticking or clicking. so if this is what it is how do i check for this and how can i fix it?

Is it coming from the BCS ? Find this out first. If it's the BCS, replace it.

If not, you won't hear it over the previously stated injectors and cams.
