Not similar to valve clatter sound. The term "ping" is not a very good description of the actual sound at all. When I think of a "ping" I think of a submarine using sonar.shrinkman2 said:So what does pinging sound like (can't wait to hear this!). I know what V-8 engines sound like when the valves clatter. Is is similar?????

Unless you want a noiseless engine, there dont exsit one. Period. All the above can be lessened to to a degree to your comfort level. LOL:wacko:
