whynotthinkwhynot It might be the tumble flaps which are in the intake manifold. Use the stethoscope trick to make sure it's not in the valve cover. Mine was dead quiet. Then I put it on the intake and got my sound. Sometime, when I have time, I'll pull the intake manifold and do a write-up about it with video. I've been driving it with the noise for probably about 50k miles.

kienangeier I will get back to you on where its coming from. I don't think its the oil because I change it every 5k miles using Mobil 1 Full synthetic 5w-20 with a Bosch Oil filter.
