Noisy Engine?

Has anyone else popped the hood open while the car is running and thought it's excessively loud? Clicking and clacking? It reminds me of sticky lifters on my 64 Ford Fairlane-ha!

Direct injection does sound a lot like diesel! It's nearly as loud as my VW Touareg TDI! It's the sound of technology, we gotta get used to it!
Is that what that is? Thanks Rib that's reassuring. It was freaking me out a bit.
Yes, it's all good. These are stout engines! :)
Is it our high pressure fuel pumps that tick making most of the noise?

Yep! Figure 2000+ PSI!
Arent the fuel injecters making that ticking noise?

Yes, true -- it's the complete fuel system. All makes and models with DI have this fun new sound. I actually like it; it sounded like loose valves on my first DI car, but after a couple (and TDI) you just resign yourself to the new sound of technology. Now I hear it on other cars and nod approvingly. :)
