    I think I'ts your connecting rod bearing or the main bearing , I have a an acura rs and I hear the same noise espcially at morning cold start ups . I had an turbo nissan 200 sx and I could hear that same noise and when I took it to the mechanic I needed to have my connecting rod bearings and Main bearings changed otherwise your crankshaft will be damaged. Hope this can help you find your problem.....
