    I recently had a forged gen 3 viper engine installed in my truck and am starting to notice a noise. I know that forged engines are typically more noisy than a normal engine due to higher clearances but this sounds like some lifter issue. What are your opinions on the noise? Thanks

    Gen 3 engines were not forged from the factory, but if you modified it with forged pistons,crank,rods, ect yes they are more noisy than cast engines especially during warm up till the pistons expand in the cylinders
