Well, I just returned from taking it to the large Chevy dealership about 15 miles from me where I've always had the service on my trucks done. I'm now driving a rental car (under warranty coverage) and they are going to tear my engine down apparently. They heard the noise loud and clear, both the the mechanic and the service writer and it's not normal. Definitely "rotational" and "in the engine", which isn't a good thing.
