It soudns like your questions have been answered, but your comment caught my attention. Clicking is OK in my book...whereas clunking is not. Does this click happen as soon as you step on the throttle from a dead stop, whether or not you're in gear? Sounds to me like the familiar but relatively harmless boost pressure recirculation assembly piston...specifically, the silicone rubber end gaskets that are known to wear out over time.
You may already be familiar with this trait. Just a thought anyway.
I've since come to realize that a couple different benign things can cause that click. It's not a clunk. Not a groan. Happens regularly, but not every time I leave from a stop. I think I've only heard it when in gear--not when just gratuitously blipping the throttle at a stop.

I appreciate the comments and advice. That write-up was great, magic.
