    could be normal could be serious, these cars tend to have "piston slap" (likely in your case because you have an 01') or its just valve tick which is normal for any GM

    if it gets louder with RPM's and your performance decreases, and you have metal in your oil then yyou have to worry about it,

    if none of these occur its not much to worry about

    To be on the safe side you need to have a 402 built and installed.

    A 402 is the solution, I think I hear a knocking too.
