Last time I changed the oil was right before the mt.net dyno day which was like 6 months ago but I only put like 500 miles on it. I'll change the oil tommorrow and drive it around see if it goes away! I'm seriously freaking out right now specially since I just spend all this money on paint, bumper, IC.

Don't sweat it dude....its probably not anything major if it was fine one day and then the next it started to act up without being driven inbetween. This kinda crap happens to everyone....**** I just found a small puddle of coolant under my car the other day, WTF!? After finding it I checked out everything for about an hour and nothing seemed to be leaking....so I'ma take my chances and just keep an eye on it . This is kinda why I love these cars so much, I mean whats the absolute worst thing that could happen....you pop a motor. Big deal, this ain't no bmw or porsche, **** you could pick up another complete motor for a few hundred bucks. I'm personally more concerned with where I'd be when the motor let loose and having to get her home...

I hope its nothing major and just something so stupid. It just sucks that my car will be all ready to go in a week or two and I just dont need another snag. We will see what happens tomorrow when I change the oil and go drive her a little

Try adding a little oil, they like to tick if the oil is half a quart low. Then change the oil to a good synthetic and beat the **** out of it for 30min.

I agree with everyone else...stuck lifter

Awesome dude...scared yourself for nothing. Sounds lean and mean, and I like the new front mount.

I would reload the original map with the battery fully charged. May have corrupted something while loading with low voltage.
