2006 Ram 5.7 Hemi Sport tick/clicking?

I recently purchased a 2006 Ram 5.7 hemi sport 4wd. I noticed a clicking or ticking noise that starts as soon as the truck turns over as a faster clicking then slows down once fully turned over, and it wont stop clicking until turned off, hot or cold it keeps clicking. The sound bounces off of cars and walls and the clicking is faster on acceleration. When accelerating the clicking sounds like it is on the passenger side. Climbing underneath the truck the clicking is coming from underneath the engine but I can't completely pin-point the location. If someone could help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated!

Typically what the ticking really is is an exhaust leak from a broken exhaust bolt. Use rubber hose and try to isolate the tick.

I don't know if this means anything but when starting the truck this morning it was about 20 degrees, and you could only hear the clicking/ticking when turned over and the initial RPM increase. After started there was no ticking until about 5 min later.

I had the same experience. "Ticking" that was loud upon starting. Mine was from 2 broken exhaust manifold bolts. Had all new ones put in on right side along with new gasket. Cost me $622 at a private shop because he had to drill the bolts out since they were broken off flush.
