ticking in motor

Does anyone else have a tick in the motor from idle to about 2000rpm? could it be a valve or spring gone bad? or is that the norm.

Are you sure the noise is coming from the engine?
I have a similar ticking noise but it seems to come from the trans or bell housing area.
I had my heads redone and new manifold gaskets 5000 miles ago so I doubt that is the problem in my case.
