diesel sounding sr20ve.

i just swaped a sr20ve into my b12 89 sentra.
when i start it up is sounds like a diesel but under normal driving it sounds greate. could it just be the hydraulic lifters? the other thing that could also be making the noise is the power steering punp. the pump is still on the car but it is running dry.
im also runing the e16s radiator will that do ore should i upgrade.

the dry pump will make a rather loud whinning sound and may crackle but not make your engine sound like diesel. if you are daily driving e16 should be ok for now to get you around but I suggest upgrade. Stock SR20 radiators arent that big anywho.
