Ive been meaning to ask Chris - have you noticed any piston slap when starting from cold?

Supposed to be a 'feature' of the JEs in a Mahle cylinder, so wondering how noticeable it is.

I haven't paid any particular notice on noise, will do so the next few times on start up.

For my reference what type of noise am i listening for i.e. what does it sound like?

It’s a deep thumping noise from what I’ve previously read, gradually reduces as it comes up to temps.

Mine, the missus's or the mistresses?

Haha, all I'm saying is I'm afraid I'm going to have to pass on option 1.
