Help-Ticking noise

Hey Everyone,

Got my stingray about 14 days ago. It is a Z51 no magnetic in Laguna Blue VIN #4799. It is an amazing car overall, but I have been hearing this ticking noise since about 1,000 miles. My 2011 SS with the LS3 had a softer ticking noise, but this seems to be pretty loud. I have heard it is the fuel pump or the injectors. Either or, I am being told that it is normal. If it is normal, any way to dampen the sound? If it is not ,any ideas on what it is. It gets louder as I accelerate especially in gears 1-4.

Don't want to be a buzzkill, but the sound is annoying. Otherwise, I am having a blast.

It's likely the high pressure fuel pump/system for the DI. That pump is located under the upper intake manifold on the LT1, so the noise seems to be coming from the engine. Mine has a slight tick too.
A number of C7 owners have commented about this.
