There is no popping at all. I have driven it about 30 miles. It only loads up, and after changing the oil yesterday from a 10w30 synblend to 10w40 conventional, the rocker knock got stronger sounding. I had the passenger side valve cover off yesterday, and the heads appear to be nearly new. It doesnt have a ton of power, but it doesnt lag or fall on its face, which I read is a symptom. As far as buying new, dont get me started. Ford or Chevy there both the same. 60k my tranny went out in my F150, my wifes chevy stays in the shop. Both or less then 7 years old, and were bought new.
