Sweet car. Don't worry about the valvetrain noise, that's what makes it a Porsche! Its a solid lifter cam engine. Its character and one of the identifying sounds of an early air cooled Porsche. You should hear noticeable valvetrain noise on that motor when they are properly adjusted. (noticeable compared to a modern car)
