i had a similar sound... it turned out to be a "burnt" lobe on the cam... a black deposit of metal.

not a good thing, to be sure.

Someone really needs to come up with a good crankshaft or keyway mod. to fix this problem before it happens to other MKII owners. Too much shake-rattle-and-boom going on with this particular problem. 8)
