So I have confirmed it is a rod bearing not in the valve train. It is weird because it only knocks slightly after warm up. I guess oil warms a little and frees the bearing enough to "clack". Gonna drop the pan and see how bad the damage is soon. I didn't see any kind of metal in oil when I changed after going through top end. Bummer that its in the bottom end. I have now joined the Powerstroke world as well.

One thing about a rod knock is it won't knock for long...

It's an 05 that has all the work done to it and yeah I got a pretty good guy here local. As far as the Hemi it is parked and hasn't been driven since problem started. I just hope the crank isn't F'd too bad.
