welcome to the club! as far as the ticking noise, I didn't know they were prone to this. I just hit 97K on my 97 with no problems (knock on wood). The only problem I've seen that the are really bad about are the IMRCs.

someone who knows more, please chime in!

intake manifold runner controls...butterflies that open on the intake @3500 rpm....after a while they gum up and stick. that throws a check engine light. kind of a pain in the rear to pull the plenum and intake to clean 'em out, but takes care of the problem.
