yeah, it runs and sounds fine once you've got the first 30-60 seconds out of the way, pulls hard to the rev limit, sounds smooth with no issues. You wouldnt know there was a problem if you hadnt heard it start when stone cold.

Its going back to the dealer tomorrow, so will see what they say, its under warranty for 1 more month.

My gut feel is that its caused by a failed hydraulic lifter, but we'll see.
