When I used to have the 357 it was pulling so hard that I would waste a 911 carrera and put him in my rear-view this was @14psi and when I reach 6krpm it starts to tick so I set it back to 11psi and that tick problem goes away unfortunately my rear turbo went bad had to replace stock turbos 13g same problem again @14psi tick starts @11psi no problemo I use Premium 97 Gas does this have to do anything with the gas ?
or is it stock fuel system ?

I think you may need to upgrade your fuel system.

Definitely upgrade the fuel system. Does that tick sound like metal
pinging? If so, that's detonation and will kill your engine in a very short time. Pull your front spark plugs and examine them for any tiny spots that are shiny. If you see some of the spots, that's part of your cylinders where the detonation has eaten them. Do you have an EGT gauge? That's a good tool for tuning if you have no A/F meter or datalogger. Keep those temps down and stay away from the ticking/pinging.

Have you gapped your plugs down, too? You'll want to do that.
