I could not remember which V8 had it. If OP's did, it could be a possible cause of the noise. I related it to my E36 because, when it was down for 6 months or so, the vanos made a very similar noise for a short time after the first start up.
Ah I see , man but what a beast a e36 would be if it did come with an option like a m60 , I was about to look for one Steve LOL ... Thanks for clarifying it for me Steve ill delete it of my wish list !
