long shot request - anyone have an MP3 of the S38?
This is a bit off the wall and illustrating my paranoia- but I can't remember how quiet the engine should be.
I have adjusted, re-adjusted and adjusted again the valve lash. Upon start up, there was more noise than I liked but it died down a great deal to where I think it is correct. All of the objective stuff has been measured and check and is in line. I haven't driven the car yet. And I know an audio recording wouldn't be objective, but might just ease my mind even more.

the car has loud valves-
every time I take it to a mechanic or the dealer they say it needs a valve adjustment.... even several hundred miles after the valves have been adjusted!! The motors have a loud valve train, there is no getting around it. Jim Rowe says non-synthetic 20W-50 can help quiet it somewhat, but not by much.--Colt

mine is not noisy
the write ups when it was new dont say it had a noisy valve train.
I think you need to decide if your ears are sensitive or the engine is noisy.
I start mine up, no clatter, no fuss.. and valves are checked and within spec. I do have a input shaft tranny noise.. goes away with the clutch in.
