Pretty much we researched about everything to do with the cylinder head.. We tried the cam cap "fix" only on the exhaust side. well it didnt do anything to improve noise.
We used a makeshift mechanics stethoscope to listen around the engine to determine where the noise is coming from. nothing from the bottom end. Popped the valve cover and noticed the groove on that part of the exhaust cam lobe while doing the cam cap fix. very smooth and straight line. Cant feel with your finger or finger nail.
So now we are lost, and need a direction to turn with the how to fix. Like he said idle cant hear the noise, rev to 2k-4kish you can hear the noise while driving or sitting still. no noise while in boost.
We are not rich and famous so we want to try all the home remedies before going in to a shop. Im not a "pro" but know my way around a car and how to handle a few wrenches from various repairs and engines swaps in my life.
Any help so He can stop texting me all hours of the day about it? haha
as for his mods, nothing internal. 99% stock car
