    X18XE will be the "big-block" engine. They're known for noisy valve tappets. My mate drives an X20XEV (the 1.8 you mention is made from that) and he cured the tapping noise with an engine flush Running like a dream now

    the tapping noise only starts at 2000 revs to 2500\3000 revs and it sounds like its comeing from the top of the inlet manifold were the injectors r,u can here the noise echoeing of the buildings its that loud.its had a full service, new coil pack and im still only getting about 21 mpg hence y i think it mite be the injectors.,
