3800 Series 2 taken partially apart

Just a short video of my engine partially taken apart. I had to change the intake gasket. This was actually my first time tackling a job like this and it was actually really easy. So if you have a 3800 engine and need the lower gasket replaced do it yourself and don't pay the dealer. I was a total noob at it and pulled it off just fine =) While it was apart I went ahead and installed an Intercooler. I figure since its already apart an Intercooler would be easy to put in at this point =)

HELP! Engine Knocking Noise 3800 Series II
Can anyone confirm this noise? Happened after a 2 hour highway trip. Oil and Filter change the day before, and Lower Intake Manifold Gasket replaced about a week prior. It did at one point seize the engine, however a couple of days later it turned over with plugs removed, and fired up fine right after they were placed back in. Still making this same noise, as it did before it locked up. 240,000 KM on the car and engine.
