    Ok so my car sounds like a tractor on startup untill pressure builds ie warms up,if I place my finger on rocker cover Ican feel chain hitting rocker cover when it's warm this no longer happens!!,

    So far I have replaced vvt unit with Chinese copy!!,same problem persists even fitted new rocker cover and it has teeth marks in this new one aswell I have taken rocker cover off checked cams ect all look ok,16 rollers between the two cams inlet cam is slightly towards inlet manifold were as exshaust notch is bang on?

    i have no fault codes only rattles on cold start I have taken sump off I'm going too replace oil pump, oil is golden no sludge or in pick up pipe the only thing I can think is worn oil pump I have pump off ,checking pump they say look for scores in piston??

    i have also noticed vvt piston has scores in it don't really want too take the vvt out again but I am thinking maybe ablocked oil passage in head leading too vvt unit as the old vvt had its mesh missing,I didn't check the oil passage my bad! I have checked oil pumps oil passage and it seems all clear any ideas as I'm in two minds weather too take out intake cam and remove vvt?or should I just. Try oil pump first???

    and the big question gsf/ Trojan oil pump 50? Or tps oil pump 110? Any diffrences ie do they both idle at same pressure??????

    ive fitted both pumps and never had any problems with pressures
    i would also check the gauze filter at the cam chain tensioner for sealant blockage

    Topran oil pump in mine. Looked to be almost OE with the part number ground off.

    I have a brand new OEM oil pump still in the box and brand new oil pump pickup if you're in need.

    well just got an oil pump took my original with me I payed 38 pounds the oil port was smaller than original!!!! So showed him he agreed so got another from out the back and low and behold it had a bigger hole same size roughly so I presume these are copy's And not an original I have bought one so fingers crossed its all good!!

    Nope just the pump itself and obviously the chain wheel I'm pretty sure.
