How are you going with your engine? I just got a brain strain and in my recovery was wondering if your headers had been checked.

Reason I ask is this can often be a misleading culprit for people chasing lifter problems.

To pin it down, place a screwdriver on your intake valley and place ear to the end. Mechanical noise should be obvious if it's a lifter. If the noise isn't obvious via this method, start looking at the exhaust!

Yeah, I'm beginning to wonder about the exhaust since mine still has the Tickford headers.

I CANNOT believe that the noises you and I have experienced (and I have seen/heard on many other XR8s) are acceptable in 2001 model cars. There has to be something in this! :eek:o1:
