I have that same noise! It sounds like a ticking or an exhaust leak, right? Only when you give it gas, not when your off the pedal moving or stopped, right?

ya sort of...and you can hear it only when you mash the gas
I hear it under light and heavy loads. Whenever I press the gas... moving or not.

The person I bought my Mustang from said he had the "ticking" checked out by a ford dealership, and they said there was nothing wrong?!?!?!

it may be a very small leak that is only audible under acceleration, did you tighten the manifolds down to factory specs.

That's what I thought, but then I keep thinking it's valves or something internal. I think I'm over thinking it, but it's odd cause it's only when I press the gas pedal. So why not when I'm doing 50MPH down the road???

yes everything is tight to spec....and all you can hear at idle is the motor no abnormal sound

Damn, I took a little video, but you can't hear it... I'm using improper equipment. The record function on my digital camera :) I'll grab my buddies video camera tomorrow, and post a sound clip. When I play the video back, it just breaks-up.
