    The noise you are hearing might be coming from the center air vents. There was a fix back in 2008 which called for pulling the vents out and adding something to quiet them down. I don't really remember exactly but it was done to my 2008. Try a search for "a/c vent or dash noise" It may take a little bit of work narrowing down the search but I know it's there.
    As far as your oil gauge, I have nothing to offer.

    Oil gauge sounds normal. I assume they run high oil pressure due to the VVT? Anyway, ours does the same thing.
