Ya, it kind of sounds like the noise after you install cams and start it up for the first time. Any ideas why the new tensioner would do this but not the old one??

One thing I did notice is that my DET originally came w/the large teeth tensioner you see on the N1 vs the smaller teeth tensioner on the SR20. The new tensioner is the smaller teeth DE one. I thought it might have actually helped because it had more adjustments/teeth, but I don't think it adjust as long as the N1-type tensioner that was originally there.
