Sounds like typical 4.6 injector noise to me.

More info would help...what viscosity oil are you using? How many miles on the current OCI?

Agree with RF Overlord.

So you can confirm on your own, you can use the poor mechanic's stethoscope: take a long wooden dowel or good length screwdriver and put the tip to the injector rail and the handle to your ear. You'll hear that Singer sewing machine sound amplified by about 3 to 5 times. Normal on a 4.6
