Well this has been very informative as always you all are the best and I really like to hear your responses.

I have noise for maybe 1 sec definitely valve train sounds like the front of the engine at start regardless of cold/hot
The noise stops when the idiot light goes off I don't have a mechanical gauge
I don't rev the engine or try to drive or anything just let it idle

i change the oil about every 3-4k or when i install a different motor whichever comes first

I have been using Oriley SAE30 (sounds like this is not advised)
I just use the O'Riley MicroGard - Oil Filter Anti-Drainback Valve Included (maybe i should be using a wix or a mobile one)

So will a new oil pump help with start up pressure
if yes I am looking at these

It aint pretty but I am really happy with the way it works (just like the rest of the truck) the hands-free work pretty good considering the noise in the truck when driving!
Holes were all ready there upgraded the broke old ones for these!
