Cant view/listen to that at work!

But are you sure its top end? Could it be big ends?
Why did you replace all that anyway?

it sounds like its comming from the top end it might be lifters also im going to take it apart again and start from beggining. but the reason i took that apart and replaced it is because this is a North american Vw and this is a common thing that goes bad in vr6'es and it was my car turn too it was making even worse noise than its making now its that mexican enginiring hehehe

Could be followers but might be a big end or main bearing.
