Make sure there isn't an air pocket in the rad. You have to park on a steep incline with the front elevated to "burp" the air out of the system. Take the res. cap off when you do this, and hold 2500-3000 rpm for a few sec, repeat. Sometimes this isn't enough and you have to use a vacuum to get the air pocket out.
That engine is ticking loudly. I hope it isn't the lifters or something related. What oil did you put in it? The VQ engine is more prone to oil shearing from what I've gathered and you shouldn't run anything thinner than 5w30 (ie 5w20 or 0w20 etc). I'd highly suggest running Total Synthetic Quartz (first choice) or Kendall Synthetic to see if it quiets down. Mine was a bit loud with whatever the dealer had in it until I switched (although not this loud).
