    Hey, I have a 06 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.8l Supercharged with 308k on it.

    I'm looking to redo my lifters as I believe I have a loose lifter. I'm wondering what else I should do.

    What would be the bare minimum I should do vs some nice upgrades for it? I'm just hoping to make it last as long as I can. Love this car.

    Noticed the loose lifter after an oil change. Horrific ticking noise now on idle with a little bit of load on it.

    This is my first post, so sorry if it's not formatted right or if I'm in the wrong place to be asking this.

    Intake gaskets and valve cover gaskets. These engines don't need much. They will run forever.
