So, from the 3 videos you posted today they don't sound nearly as bad as the one you posted yesterday. The first video I could hear it pretty good towards the end, second one I didn't even notice it, and the third one I heard it a little towards the end. To me it still sounds like a bearing in the bottom end but that's just a guess...... definitely don't go off my opinion and pull your engine. Stick to your plan and drain the oil this weekend and inspect the filter thoroughly.

As for pulling the engine if you have a lift its easier to drop the entire K member with trans and harness attached. I have a thread on here titled 2013 GT TVS track times or something along those lines which has multiple pics from when we installed a new short block. You may find that useful if you end up going that route. If your using a picker disconnect trans and bring it out the top.

I definitely have some decisions to think over.

What path did you end up going for pulling the engine, traditional cherry picker or dropping it? I have access to hoists, so I could drop the engine out with the trans. I’ve been told that’s easier. Then I could leave the engine at my shop along with the trans for the winter, and work on it.
I did it with a cherry picker, I didn't have access to a lift. I also read that it's easier to drop the K member.

Saw your car on coyote classifieds for sale. Is there a reason you did not disclose the noise in your for sale ad?

did an oil change yesterday, nothing in the filter. Raced the car last night. No noise, or anything of concern. Had the car on the lift let it run and listened. Idk what I even heard before exactly either cause the noise is so weird. But I haven’t heard it since I did the oil change. Not goin bring it up if the noise isn’t there anymore.
So I’m sure if I was raving it to 7k last night something would have happened.
