welcome to the forum, something it may be based on the location that it is (this is a guess since noises are VERY hard to troubleshoot online) make sure you don't have a small exhaust leak, once the exhaust warms up it expands slightly and may be reduced to an un-noticable noise, there is a "donut" where the exhaust meets the flex pipe that may be the culprit, I'm sure your oil is fine if you're changing that frequently, as far as the oil is concerned I wouldn't be to terribly worried about that, there are a small handfull of people here who believe it only needs to be changed every 8,000 miles (I'm a 3,000 mile guy but to each their own) and their cars seem fine for now... If your valves have never been adjusted that could cause a noise like that as well, there is a write up in the DIY section on valve adjustment too, hope this helps! sorry it's so difficult to troubleshoot a noise issue on the net

odd, if that's the case then they are assuming that it's in the block or lower end of the motor?? the problem with sound is that it can resonate through to different areas and that makes it a PITA.... have you tried a higher octane fuel just to make sure that it's not that simple?
