A knocking? Generally if you have a knocking noise coming from the enigne that means you have compression issues. I have always been tought when buying vehicles to stay away from the knocking. Where does the noise come from?

np!
and to the op, if the knock is coming from the header your fine.
if its coming from under the valve cover, then you have issues. if your really worried about it, pull your spark plugs. and check for evidence of detonation and pre ignition. you can tell a lot about the way your car is running by reading your plugs. helpful linky= Century Performance Center, Inc. :: Spark Plug Reading
