well i think I get a noise similar. It started happening after I got my K&N oil filter. I think it might have something to do with the anti-drainback valve. Dunno. I don't have anyone to listen to it that actually could figure out the problem.

You will have plenty of time to fix it when you come down here... We'll get it taken care of.
