But the amount of smoke went down a tone, its barley noticable at idle if you look very hard

Does it still make a puff of white smoke if you give it a rev after it has idled for a few moments?

I wouldn't worry about the smoke then... For now, at least.

I don't know what to tell you about the knock. Just try to find out if it is an exhaust leak or if the noise is coming from the inside of the engine.

Try to determine if the source of the noise is coming from the valve covers, or down by the oil pan.

Or the front of the engine, where the timing chains are located.

if it sounds like its coming from inside the timing cover, then its probably just a timing chain tensioner or something. usually what most of the knocks on this forum come from. i cant watch the video with any audio, but ill try to remember to check back after work sometime.

If yours sound like this then it's the timing chain.

That's a very high estimate in my opinion... I could have my engine rebuilt with forged bottom end, etc for a little less... Get a second opinion

Instead of fixing the old heads, what about some junkyard heads and then timing chain when swapping heads? 5k sounds high

That's very very high. I would get a pullout motor or something.

Blown Head gasket?

If you think someone will pay 5k for it like that by all means sell it. I paid 5500 for a clean 04 GT convertible. I don't see that happening but I could be wrong unless it where a Mach 1 or Bullitt. Those are hot around here and they go for good money
