Hey cadin, I just took a video today and I'm workin on putting it on youtube now. It should be up later tonight.

Pop & blow is on to something about valve clearance. Make sure you get in there and do a valve job so that's ruled out but also look for broken springs. I can only speak from experience and I knew it was advised to keep the valves from turning on their seats while adjusting but I turned a few before I really knew what I was doing.

As for oil pressure, I've never gotten the temp up to 95 except for once when I had air in the system and was in city traffic. I do mostly city driving and she'll get up to 85 after some time driving, at that point my oil pressure is around 1.5 to 1.3 bar.

Your knock is just as noticeable under the hood as it is behind the wheel but mine is more noticeable behind the wheel, which is why I got the stethoscope to hit everything from vacuum pump to torque converter to muffler.

We'll keep at it.
