Check to make sure its not a manifold gasket. If you have an exhaust leak it will TICK a lot.

Look around the exhaust manifold for any carbon/black marks on the head, or spark plugs etc.

Mine makes a light ticking noise about 30 seconds after cold start up. Later at full operating temp its gone. Some say they have cured it by changing the oil or changing to a different oil. Like its a lifter they get to quiet down.
