I would give it a couple days and just see if it was air bubbles
Well it's been a week and she's still running strong. No ping/knock, valve chatter etc. I really havn't noticed any gain in mpg but then again I havn't done any highway driving yet all aroung town. Plus it's been kind of hard to resist puttin the pedal down here and there.
The fluctuating temp gauge has settled a bit. It only fluctuates from just below the N to the R while I'm cruising and seems to hold on the N while I'm stoped (weird). I might add that I went from a 180 to a 195 when I did the head swap. Don't know if that has anything to do with it.
Jd, after doing a couple oil changes the smoke/steem coming out of the oil fill has stopped. So I guess like you said, that was just excess water steaming off/out.
