I bought my SRT8 off a buddy of mine who bought it new. When the car is cold I get a lifter tap. He said it always did it and the dealership says it's normal. It goes away after it warms up but it does concern me. The car only has 7,000 miles on it, will this cause engine damage down the road.

I would think what you might be hearing is actually piston slap and short skirt performance emissions engines tend to due that.. especially with the hyperutectic pistons forgings.. I thin they coated the skirts to help reduce it some.. but when cold it still happens to some..

myself, wouldnt worry much about this.. as long as it goes away when it warms up..
