so today i finally took my head of my det, nothing seems to be wrong with the head but when i was pushing down on the pistons nothing happen until i pushed the cylinder#3 n it moved down a little n made a clicking noise, so im guessing its something with the rods or spun bearing, before i took everything apart the motor was making this noise YouTube - SR20DET Tapping noise, rocker arms? bearings? .....would it be cheaper to fix it or should just get a sr20ve n boost it? also how much can a stock ve hold with a gt2871r turbo for DD use?

ROD KNOCK!!!!!!!!! it wasn't to come out. The Rod that is, park it and don't drive it or you might throw the rod through the block.

ninja edit!!

VE rods are the same as the DE.

Definately rod knock. When I got rod knock from Oil starvation I took off all the turbo stuff and still drove it to and from work gently. Although mine would only knock at 3k and up.
