I'm going to try to suck out the oil gallery and see what that gets me. If that doesn't resolve anything then I will seriously be thinking about tearing the engine down again. Shimming the pump is a bandaid. Something is wrong and I have to find what it is if I want this engine to last 200K + miles.

On a more positive note, my oil leak seems to be resolved and I put my finger on the vacuum leak. The whistle is from the idle air pulling thru the PCV valve as I originally thought. I messed with it tonight and could not get the idle air motor to open at all. I am going to return it this weekend and get an OEM unit.
