All of this is caused by no.1 cylinder. What really puzzles me is the increase in rpm's when the supply to no.1 is cracked.

No. 1 Cylinder seems to take the first hits becuase of the EGR (atleast I have noticed this).
Have you itallian tuned up this engine real good?
Mine makes noise at idle too but your lack of knock or anything while off idle makes me think it isn't all too terrible of a problem.
