^^That is a cool idea, Im running to the shop to see what they came up with. They dropped my oil pan at my request to fix a leak, however , they want to make sure it's not the rear main seal. If they had time to look into the noise I'll go from there.
Thanks for the replies. I'll search build threads to get an idea of cost to rebuild. But that is worst case scenario. I'm hoping its something simple.

Edit: I was able to see under the car up on the lift. The oil pan was pulled and I personally inspected the internals that I could see.
Everything looked good and the shop agreed. If it's anything, it's on the top end. I'll see how it sounds after I get it back today.

If you have a front or rear seal leak you'd see it seaping out, not likey you have a leak. For noise's=your on a chain w/ solid lifter's= that transfers noise. I'd be grabbing a clearence gauge & checking your lash & then I'd be looking at your chain tensioner & chain guide's. I beleive you need .08-.10 in.& .10-.12ex. for your lash. Check the spec's 1st.

The shop did find the rear main seal is leaking. But it's not bad so I figure ill deal with it till I need a clutch change. Makes no sense paying $500-600 in labor just for a $40 seal.
