Its an 89 coupe with a blacktop sr, and since I have you here, I've searched all over multiple forums and youtube and I havent been able to find an engine that makes quite the same noise as mine, do you happen to know what it is?

and this is my 240, its a work in progress but its fun to drive when it works

Welcome to the forum bro, @eggman it looks like people finally are coming out of caves here in FL almost every week a Floridian is popping out in the forums...lol

@booozy=My best suggestion is to use one of this "a stethoscope" to pin point where the noise is coming from. If you don't have one here is a link on how to make one http://www.sr20-forum.com/audio-electronics/50744-diy-electronic-knock-stethoscope.html Once with this in hand you can pin point where the noise is coming from and get down and dirty. Most common noises are wrist pin knocks, engine rod bearing noise, or lifter noise.

Alright ill give it a go. I can't run it now because since I've taken that video ive stripped a camshaft bracket bolt and broken the oil pan :/ but if I remember correctly it was coming more from the back, which is what the rocker arm I broke was

Welcome to the Forum I had a circlip on a free float piston pin fail and made a noise kind of like that but a scope should help you narrow it down.
Good luck in finding it and getting it back to 100%
