try thicker oil, and Lucas oil additives, and see if it doesn't smooth out after a few hundred miles. I started getting some heavy knocking 10k back, I did that treatment, and I haven't had it since (haven't used Lucas since either).

WRX ENGINE SWAP TIME!!!

j/k...try the thicker oil. How many miles you got? does it flash the check engine light? Pre-OBD2 cars would flash the problem when the car has the keys turned to start, but isn't running. Wondering if its thrown anything for you to be able to read.
