N55 turbo uses direct injection(DI), which is borrowed from diesel engine tech.

Maybe my hearing is not that sharp, there is no noticeable knocking noise at 1:58 to me. At 2:16, when the phone is moved close to the dash(?) the tick-tick-tick noise returns. That seems to be at a lower pitch than the tick-tick-tick from my N26, but there can be a difference between N26(I4 turbo) and N55(I6 turbo).

Is there any trusted local indy that can provide a second diagnostics/opinion?
