ticking right side of engine, sounds like header leak ticking right side of engine, sounds like header leak

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Reg. Cab Sport Hemi. Has a terrible loud ticking coming from right header area.. Ticking is all over YouTube known as the Hemi-tick.. Some say dealer will replace headers and bolts both sides and will be the fix using the stronger headers and upgraded bolts.
