I wouldn't be too worried about the "ticking" sound unless it's something that just started happening. All of the S14 motors that I have heard have been "noisy" and it's mainly dut to the pistons and crank being forged, they need more clearance because forged metal expands more when it heats up.
Or mabey you just need your valves adjusted like Doug said, in the states the valve job is about $150 depending how many shims you need.
