The car was in drive and I was hitting the gas lightly. Its much quieter when the car is idling in park.

Its not the exact same problem.

The person who started this thread almost certainly had an exhaust leak unfortunately for you...you do not have an exhaust leak.

How long was your engine run without oil?

how did the engine become low on oil to the point where it "ran out"?

Based on my initial impression the fix is simple....a crate motor!

Ran the engine out of oil? Did it all leak out or did you not ever check it? If you really ran it out of oil the engine is toast.

Is that an original engine with the stock heads? If those are the original heads with the original valves then your heads are probably hammered and clapped out from not putting a lead additive in your gas.

If it is then turn up the radio and party 'till it pukes. What noise?
