The mechanic and I were definitely positive the rattle was in the bottom end. Stethescope on the water pump, transmission, valve covers, LIM, alternator, Power Steering pump sounded like fresh bearings in good oil..... quiet and smooth.
On the Intake manifold'* (went from passenger side runner to runner nearest the TB) and the noise was more audible the closer we went to the TB.
We pulled the plug wires and found the 1/4 coil to have very rusty connectors so we cleaned those and the spark plug wire connections and that didn't change anything. I pulled the 1 and 4 plugs and they look good.
He said false KR wouldn't be that high if it was coming from outside of the block unless it was some really heavy knocking on the block, which would be audible to the ear, especially with the hood open and someone over the engine like we were.

Hey, I stopped back in with the SSEi and we went for a ride with the Snap-on hooked up. NO KR BABY!!!!! 17* advanced timing too.
I'm thinking before I put the 3.5" on I may see how far I can advance the timing in 80* weather with the stock pulley and see what that net'* me. Might even swing for a timing **** in my SSEi so when I go to the track with Toluene or race gas and a aeroforce (I've decided that'* where I spend money next on my car) I may even be able to run up to 20* advance on race gas.
