I've got a 2008 with around 58k miles on it that started making a ticking noise, which increases in frequency with the RPM. After about 3k RPM you can really hear it. Not audible at idle.

Some searches here came up with an issue with the connecting rod bearings. What typically is the fix in these cases? Shop foreman had mentioned it could possibly be VANOS related when I took him for a drive, but looks like they may have progressed past that theory. A bit concerned about the motor being disassembled...
