Well personally for an AU i would stick to the w30 oil as the engine has a much finer tolerance from the E Series engines.
No problems here with running Mobil 1 10w-30 runs very very smooth and not a tick or rattle in both startup and after a hard run on a hot day.
In regards to the noise, is it happening only when it's cold or all the time??
