Default fpr question (just bought the car, trying to fix it now)

Well i got rid of the knock...still have a lot of.lifter noise lol...oh well.

Now, as I'm trying to find the source to my coolant smell, I looked at my fpr.
Isn't the stock fpr supposed to be in line with the aftermarket afpr?
My car just has the fuel rail going into the afpr into the fuel return.
I'm not getting appropriate pressure am I? What psi should I be reading at the fpr?

Post a thread in meet and greet with pics and mods list. A video for the noise would help a lot. IDK if I would have bought a 22yr old turbo miata that didnt have a wb installed? Kinda scary.

It's scary, but I got a decent deal on it and I helped a friend out.
But I've been babying it. Hopefully it just got low on oil and its in the head since the cam seals are leaking. Going to replace them today and get a thinker weight oil to see if it helps any.

If it went away after start up, its probably just the classic lifter tick. But with out actually hearing it, cant say for sure.

I'm going to try to get a video up, but i broke my computer and am using my phone so it won't be the best quality.
It was still hot when I started it, it wasn't off long enough to cool down. it did sound like knock when it started, but I couldn't tell if it was coming from the top or bottom end.
It sucks too because my DD neon was stolen over the weekend while I was out of town so now I'm stuck driving the miata.
The sound did go away once I started driving, but the oil pressure guage was bouncing around.

So does it just tick when you start it then start to go away or does it continue as you drive? Also do you know how long the motor has been turbo'd?
