    First check for a leak at the exhaust manifold gasket or a possible crack in the manifold. Get a cheap stethoscope from Harbor Freight or on line. They are very cheap and excellent for finding noises. Next check for lifter ticking. Common on the 5.7 Hemis . As long as it is a tick and not a knock, you should be fine.
