I've come to determine that the noise is loudest in the front of the engine, piston 1. I pulled off the valve cover again to take a closer look. There appears to be a fine "sand of metal shavings mixed in with the residue oil in the cover. My best guess here it that although this engine is performing well, not smoking, and seems to have plenty of power that there is an issue with piston 1. Might look into rebuilding the engine, but it would be a real learning curve... Looking for another engine to stick in there for now and might just go ahead an grab the one out of my CD. I have to take that engine out of the CD anyways to repaint the car so no real extra work. I would like to fined a nice low milage engine to put back in.
